Google found guilty on location cheating in Australia

Google found to have misled Australian users in location tracking case. The Australian Federal Court has ruled that Google misled users in the country when it comes to how it collects and uses location data.

Google was particularly crafty on this occasion as it gave users two different security settings, both of which had to be switched off in order for the location tracking to be disabled.

However,  only one of the settings mentioned the word “location”. It was called “location history” whilst the other, which Google made sure was turned on by default, was called “webs and apps”.

“Who on earth would have guessed that “webs and apps” setting had anything to do with the location tracking”, asks lawyer Yair Cohen.
