The penalty on Google is for illegally monitoring users in Incognito mode in Chrome browser. It is generally believed that searching in the private mode of any web browser does not create search history and you are not tracked, but it is not with Google Chrome, though even though Google has been imposed a hefty fine, the company denies the allegation and says it is very honest about collecting data from private mode.
The lawsuit was filed by law firm Boies Schiller Flexner in San Jose, California. The complaint claimed that the proposed class action included millions of Google users who have used the Internet in private mode until June 2016. The complaint said that Google has no right to save the data of all US users.
In general, Google Chrome browser’s private mode i.e. Incognito mode does not save users ‘ search history, but if Google wants, it can track users through Google Analytics. Google spokesman Jose Castaneda refuted the claims and said that even in Incognito mode, some websites can track users ‘ activity and save data.
Even earlier Google has been accused of collecting users ‘ data several times. Last year, Google was accused of misusing its authority to promote its product, after which Google was imposed a hefty fine.
