Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) filed a lawsuit against Alphabet’s Google on Tuesday, alleging that the company misled smartphone users on how personal location data was being collected, kept and used.
According to the regulator, the local Google unit for almost two years did not tell users of its Android operating system that they needed to switch off two settings – not one – if they did not want the company to keep their information.
“Google’s conduct caused users to understand that personal data about their location was not being obtained … by Google when in fact personal data was being obtained,” the ACCC wrote in a Federal Court filing.
