Google Illegally Shares Android Users’ Personal Info

On August 5, 2011, two residents of Alabama launched a class action against Google, Inc., accusing the technology giant of unlawfully accessing personal information from Android cellphones and sharing it with application developers and advertisers without users’ permission.  The lawsuit alleges that Google accessed, collected, monitored and remotely stored electronic data derived from the mobile devices traced to consumers’ unique device identifiers, a feature which could not be turned off even if consumers had utilized the so-called “privacy feature” of the system.  This resulted in the disclosure of personal and sensitive information which Google purportedly used for marketing purposes.  The attorneys at Balkan & Patterson, LLP are experienced in class action litigation and will act to protect consumers against corporate wrongdoers.
