“Google tracks and collects consumer browsing history and other web activity data no matter what safeguards consumers undertake to protect their data privacy,” according to the complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in San Jose, Calif.
The case was filed by Boies Schiller Flexner on Tuesday (2nd June 2020) under Brown v. Google LLC, 20-3664, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).
Google says users are in control of what they share, but the lawsuit says this is false. The lawsuit claims for invasion of privacy and violations of federal wiretapping.
According to the lawsuit, whenever a user visits a web-page the company collects information, including IP addresses and browsing histories, which makes Google ideal for governments to go to get detailed information on individual users.
