The Attorney General of Washington DC, Karl Racine, demanded on Monday Google for what he called deceptive location practices that invade the users privacy.
Three other state attorneys general also plan to file lawsuits as part of a bipartisan effort to hold Google accountable for Privacyhis office said in a statement.
“Google falsely led consumers to believe that changing their account and device settings would allow customers to protect their privacy and control what personal information company could access,” Racine said.
“The truth is that, contrary to Google’s statements, it continues to systematically monitor customers and profit from their data. Google’s false statements are a clear violation of privacy of consumers,” he added.
