(Natural News) In an update on a lawsuit against tech giant Google, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that the tech giant continues to collect location data even after users turn off tracking on their smartphones and other devices.
Documents recently submitted in court by Brnovich’s office revealed that Google engineers sent emails expressing concerns about the company’s location data collection efforts. In their emails, the engineers suggested that the Associated Press report on the matter in 2018 was correct.
“So there is no way to give a third-party app your location and not Google? This doesn’t sound like something we would want on the front page of the [New York Times],” one employee allegedly stated in a newly unredacted section.
“I agree with the article. Location off should mean location off, not except for this case or that case,” stated another Google employee. (Related: Google engineers BLOW THE WHISTLE on Google’s massive criminal conspiracy.)
Google hid privacy settings as more customers started using them
Talking to Fox News, Brnovich said the documents suggest that Google knew it was collecting users’ information and that such a revelation would upset customers.
“What we’ve uncovered so far, I believe, shows that Google themselves understand and appreciate that what they are doing is something that is sneaky and something that would piss off consumers if they knew about it,” he said. “So the fact they are trying to hide what they are doing, they are being sneaky about it, and using every trick in the arsenal to stop this from seeing the light of day is all consumers need to know about Google’s intentions.”
