Google Tracking to track browsing activity

Google

A lawsuit filed against Google on Tuesday accuses her company that it monitors the activity of its users, without them knowing it, even when they use the private browsing function.

The complaint claims that Google is monitoring them data user browsing and other information through it Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other applications and add-ons, such as applications Google on mobile devices and Sign-In for websites, regardless of the browser they choose.

When a user visits one website or opens an application that uses Google's services, personal information such as IP address, what it sees, browsing history and user hardware details are sent to server of the company in California.

The plaintiffs added that this is almost always done without his consent user, as Google does not require websites to disclose in advance that it is collecting user information.

The plaintiffs are seeking $ 5.000 in damages per user for the alleged intrusion into their privacy, which is expected to cost the company dearly, as millions of people are affected.
