GOOGLE REQUIRES 5 BILLION COMPENSATION FOR INKOGNITO TRACKING

In the United States, Google has filed a class-action lawsuit for $ 5 billion in damages.

The company is accused of tracking users who have activated private browser mode (incognito mode). The lawsuit alleges that Google collected data on what users viewed online and what sites they visited. The information was allegedly collected using Google Analytics tools, Google Ad Manager, plug-ins on websites, and smartphone applications.

Plaintiffs believe that this is how Google learned about friends, hobbies, favorite things, and the most intimate and potentially embarrassing things that users searched for online.

The lawsuit concerns millions of users who have activated the incognito mode since June 1, 2016. The plaintiffs are demanding $ 5,000 in compensation for each victim.
