Scandal around Google: the company admitted that they monitored the location of their users without permission
Today, on August 17th, in San Francisco, representatives of Google recognized that the company is monitoring the location of users, even if their gadgets disable the function of geolocation. Earlier, the company denied all charges, arguing that when users disable the geolocation function, no one collects user data.
After information about this leaked in the media, the company changed the help points for their services. They explained their actions this way: when using services like search and maps, some data, such as location, can be saved even after turning off geolocation.
Earlier in the media reported that "shadowing from Google" threatens users of the Android and IOS operating systems.
