• Mark Brnovich (R) sued Google on Wednesday, alleging violation of user privacy.
Arizona's state Attorney General is suing Google over claims the company collected Android users' location data even when users turned digital tracking off.
Reporting by Tony Romm at the Washington Post:
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages in arguing that Google, the maker of the Android smartphone operating system, set up its mobile software in a way that enriched its advertising empire and deceived device owners about the protections actually afforded to their personal data, running afoul of Arizona consumer-protection laws that prohibit companies from misrepresenting their business practices.
“When consumers try to opt out of Google’s collection of location data, the company is continuing to find misleading ways to obtain information and use it for profit,” Brnovich (R) said in an interview.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
