Google Pays Big Fine Over Privacy

9 Aug

Large online firms continue to face legal penalties over the way they treat peoples’ right to privacy. Today, Google agreed to a settlement with the FTC.

As reported by Claire Cain Miller for the New York Times: “The Federal Trade Commission on Thursday fined Google $22.5 million to settle charges that it bypassed privacy settings in Appleā€™s Safari browser to show advertisements, and violated an earlier privacy settlement with the agency. The fine is the largest civil penalty ever levied by the commission, which has been cracking down on tech companies for privacy violations and is also investigating Google for antitrust violations.”
