U.K. issues Google yet another privacy ultimatum


Recommended Posts

U.K. Google Street View Scandal
France isn't the only European country that's tired of asking Google to clean up its privacy act. BBC News reports that the United Kingdom Information Commissioner's Office has given Google just over a month to delete all the data that it collected from users through its Street View initiative. It's been nearly a year since Google admitted to U.K. regulators that it had neglected to delete thousands of emails and passwords that employees had swept up from Wi-Fi hotspots while driving through various neighborhoods in Google Street View cars. Google was originally ordered to delete all the data collected through Street View back in 2010 and U.K regulators are now threatening to charge the company with a criminal offense if it doesn't comply within the next 35 days.p8KjZw6FrCM
