Google Fine $22.5 Million Due to Latest Privacy Breakdown

Google is facing another huge problem as of this moment as it was recently filed a regulatory case questioning the Internet search. With this, Google was obliged to pay a huge amount of $22.5 million fine in order to settle this latest regulatory case which started by questioning the Internet search leader’s respect for the privacy and integrity of the people of its internal controls. This has been actually a long time issue with Internet search engines because you cannot really control privacy concerns because of the people who are trying anything they could do in order to get into your websites. Since Google is considered to be one of the huge search engines in the world, it is more likely that their reputation will be sought after to be destroyed by these people, whoever they are.

On Thursday, it was announced by the Federal Trade Commission that the penalty matches the figure reported by The Associated Press and other media outlets last month. It also turned out that this fine given to Google was already the most that the FTC has ever fined a company for a civil violation. The rebuke resolves that the allegations made by FTC stating that Google Inc. duped millions of Web users who use Apple Inc.’s Safari browser.

As for Google’s response, they assured the people that it wouldn’t monitor their online activities, as long as they did not change the browser settings to permit the tracking.
