Facebook has spent more than $16 million protecting Mark Zuckerberg and his family in just five years after ‘specific threats’ to the 31-year-old. The firm disclosed the staggering amount spent on security for Zuckerberg – the fourth richest person in the world – in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.

It reveals that, in 2015, $5 million was invested in bodyguards and other protective services to ensure the safety of its founder and CEO.

The substantial sum is in fact a mark down from the $6.2 million spent on his security in 2014. The year before, he had $3.3 million-worth of security.

Millions have also been spent on private travel, as well installing alarms in his $10 million home in San Francisco’s well-heeled Mission District.

Zuckerberg, who is worth $35.7 billion, has 16 bodyguards working on rotation to protect him, his wife Priscilla, and their daughter Maxima.

Though he famously earns a $1-a-year salary, he owns nearly 422 million shares of Facebook stock, which rakes in his millions.
