The suit alleges that the tech giant has continued to collect location information even when users have turned to track off.
“It’s as simple as this: We allege that Google is violating our Consumer Protection Act,” Brnovich said. “What we have uncovered is Google systematically is collecting as much information about you and everyone else in this country without you having the ability to essentially opt-out.”
Recent revelations from the lawsuit showed that some of Google’s own employees had concerns about the company’s practices after a news report detailing the controversy was published.
“Essentially, every time you use your phone, they are tracking everything you’re doing. They’re collecting every amount of information,” Brnovich said.
