Google reaches $93 million privacy settlement with California

On Thursday, the state of California and the world's largest search engine reached a $93 million settlement on Google's location-privacy policies.

The agreement comes after a $391.5 million agreement with 40 states in November 2022 to end an inquiry into the manner in which the firm tracked customers' locations.

Attorney General Rob Bonta said in a statement.

Our investigation revealed that Google was telling its users one thing — that it would no longer track their location once they opted out

Google agreed to a number of limits as part of the settlement, which it did not admit any wrongdoing, including increasing the openness of location tracking.
