Lawsuit says Google tracks phone users regardless of privacy settings
Jonathan Stempel
2 MIN READ

(Reuters) - Google has been accused in a lawsuit of illegally tracking
the movements of millions of iPhone and Android phone users even when
they use a privacy setting to prevent it.

office in Beijing, China August 8, 2018. REUTERS/Thomas Peter/File Photo
According to a complaint filed late Friday, Google falsely assures
people they won’t be tracked if they turn the “Location History” feature
on their phones to “off,” and instead violates their privacy by
monitoring and storing their movements.

“Google represented that a user ‘can turn off Location History at any
time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer
stored.’ This simply was not true,” the complaint filed in San Francisco
federal court said.

The plaintiff, Napoleon Patacsil of San Diego, is seeking class-action
status on behalf of U.S. users of Android phones and Apple iPhones who
turned the tracking feature off.

He is seeking unspecified damages for Google’s alleged intentional
violations of California privacy laws, and intrusion into people’s
private affairs.

The alleged tracking by the unit of Mountain View, California-based
Alphabet Inc was described in an Aug. 13 Associated Press article, which
said it was confirmed by computer science researchers at Princeton
University.

Google did not immediately respond on Monday to requests for comment.
Michael Sobol, a partner at Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein
representing Patacsil, did not immediately respond to similar requests.

Patacsil claimed that Google illegally tracked him on his Android phone
and later on his iPhone, where he had downloaded some Google apps.

He said Google’s “principal goal” was to “surreptitiously monitor” phone
users and let third parties do the same.

The help section of Google’s website now says that turning Location
History off “does not affect other location services” in phones, and
that some location data may be saved through other services, such as
Search and Maps.

The case is Patacsil v Google Inc, U.S. District Court, Northern
District of California, No. 18-05062.
