Alphabet's Google to pay nearly $400 million to settle US location-tracking probe


The Michigan attorney general's office announced Monday that Alphabet's Google will pay $391.5 million to settle claims made by 40 states that the search and advertising powerhouse improperly tracked users' locations.


The investigation and settlement, which were spearheaded by Oregon and Nebraska, show the tech giant is facing increasing legal difficulties from state attorneys general who have been aggressively attacking the company's user tracking practises recently. In addition to making the payment, Google was ordered by the Iowa attorney general's office to provide users with comprehensive information about location-tracking data
