Google could be forced to pay £2.7 billion in compensation to iPhone users
Google could be forced to pay over five million iPhone users £2.7 billion in compensation as it is accused of selling their data without their consent. A new consumer campaign called "Google You Owe Us" is launching a class action against the web giant over allegedly unlawfully harvesting the browsing histories of iPhone users without their permission. A group of at least 5.4 million affected consumers could be owed hundreds of pounds each in compensation, according to Richard Lloyd, former Which? executive director and Government adviser, who is spearheading the action.
