7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “To turn ‘off’ Google location data users need to click two buttons | 7NEWS” – below is their description.
Today the Federal Court ruled that Google had misled consumers about the use of location data history.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said that people thought that if they had switched off ‘Location History’, then that would stop Google storing a user’s location history.
That was not the case. The Federal Court was told that users also have to turn off ‘Web & App Activity’ for their location history to not be stored.
“This is the first ruling of its type in the world in relation to these location data issues” – Rod Sims – ACCC.7NEWS Australia YouTube Channel
