Google sued over software to track users even when the ban on data collection. Thus, the surveillance continued even when turned off the settings.

The statement of claim in the California court filed law company Boies Schiller Flexner. The occasion was the program Firebase Google, which led to collecting data about users even if you disable tracking options in Google settings-accounts. Lawyers representing a group of plaintiffs, pointed out that thus IT-giant violates the Federal law on wiretapping and California privacy law.

The program Firebase Google is pretty popular among developers. It is used to store data, delivery notification and advertising. Usually Firebase works inside applications invisible to users. The plaintiffs insist that despite the ban of the account owner to collect data on its activity in the Internet, Google can access information on using applications and viewing Internet pages.

Earlier lawyers from Boies Schiller Flexner has filed a lawsuit against Google because of spying on users, which is the Chrome browser. Then it was about collecting data when you select incognito mode, designed to hide information about the online activity of the account owner.

Previously, Apple ordered to pay $500 million to the owners of the old iPhone, which deliberately slowed down updates to the operating system.
