Google agrees to record $22.5 million fine on privacy

AP:

Google is paying a record $22.5 million fine to settle allegations that it broke a privacy promise by secretly tracking millions of Web surfers who use Apple’s Safari browser.

The penalty announced Thursday by the Federal Trade Commission matches the figure that The Associated Press and other media outlets had reported last month. It’s the largest fine that the FTC has imposed against a company for violating a previous agreement with the agency.
