Google privacy case brings $22.5M fine
Google has agreed to pay a $22.5 million fine to settle allegations that it broke a privacy promise by secretly tracking the online activities of millions of people who use Apple’s Safari web browser.
If approved, the $22.5 million fine would be the largest penalty ever imposed by the FTC. The agency has been investigating whether unauthorized changes Google made to Safari’s privacy settings violated a recent FTC agreement prohibiting the company from misleading consumers.
