Carney Bates & Pulliam is investigating potential claims against Google, Inc. Reports indicate that Google has been collecting and using the location history of Android devices, even when the device’s owner turned of the Location History feature of the device. According to the Associated Press, “Google says that [turning off ‘Location History’] prevent the company from remembering where you’ve been. Google’s support page on the subject states: ‘You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.’ That isn’t true. Even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without asking.”
We believe that this violates multiple privacy laws and that Google needs to be held accountable. If you own or owned an Android mobile device, and if you turned off your Location History, we want to speak with you today.
