Group taking Google to UK High Court for violating iPhone privacy settings

‘Google You Owe Us’ is taking Google to court for the way it obtained data from people’s iPhones.

The BBC states that Google is being taken to court in the UK for harvesting data from 5.4 million users in the United Kingdom to deliver ad targets.

The group ‘Google You Owe Us’ is led by former Which? director Richard Lloyd. He states that each user could get “several hundred pounds” if the case is won, and according to the BBC, he is supported by law firm Mishcon de Reya.

The group also says that Google placed ad-tracking cookies throughout 2011 and 2012 that can pinpoint which websites users have been to on Safari devices. The Safari browser blocks cookies by default.

The case will reportedly be held in the High Court around spring 2018.
