Leftists are long due for a rude awakening.
One giant organization could soon get it.
Because a gang of state attorney generals just slapped a left-wing behemoth with one major lawsuit.
Tech giant Google has been abusing its power in disturbing ways.
The company has long abandoned its old mantra “don’t be evil,” and Google’s actions reflect that.
Now, multiple states are suing Google over one shocking invasion of privacy.
Google is currently under the microscope again for deceptively logging location tracking history.
Several states have filed a lawsuit against the corporation for storing user data despite assurances it would not.
Washington, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine said:
“Google falsely led consumers to believe that changing their account and device settings would allow customers to protect their privacy and control what personal data the company could access. The truth is that contrary to Google’s representations it continues to systematically surveil customers and profit from customer data.”
In addition to Washington, D.C., Texas, Indiana and Washington State are suing Google for lying to customers and telling them that their location data was not being tracked after the feature was disabled.
Racine’s investigation into Google began back in 2018 when the Associated Press reported that:
“Google’s support page on the subject states: ‘You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.’ That isn’t true. Even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without asking.”
Google’s coziness with the surveillance state is well documented.
The company engaged in Project Dragonfly—a product that could surveil citizens and shut down the internet—with the Chinese Communist Party, and only abandoned the project amid backlash.
A tech reporter for The Washington Post once wrote:
“Over a recent week of Web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends (cookies)…Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad and data companies ride shotgun while I clicked around the Web…This was made possible by the Web’s biggest snoop of all: Google. Seen from the inside, its Chrome browser looks a lot like surveillance software.”
User data is not safe in the hands of Big Tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
It is more important than ever for online users to exercise operational security.
The Big Tech companies have shown that they do not care about constitutional protections and due process.
They are enamored with the CCP model as evidenced in Peter Schweizer’s new book “Red-Handed,” an examination of how Big Tech is in bed with China.
Google is finally being taken to task for its deceptive practices.
