Oklahoma to receive big settlement from Google

by The 100 Companies

We all know our locations are being tracked by apps on our smartphones. But companies can get in big trouble if they do so without users’ permission or after they make a specific request not to do so.

That’s what got Google in trouble, to the tune of $391.5 million it is required to pay to 40 states after it was found the company violated consumer protection laws with its location practices since 2014. It’s a win for consumers and the largest multi-state settlement in U.S. history dealing with privacy.

Oklahoma will receive more than $6.8 million in this settlement.
