Google To Pay $17 Million For Privacy ViolationsJust a drop in the sea.

Back in 2012, Google was caught tracking Safari users through a loophole, which caused some stir in the community. Now, it looks like the search giant’s actions were not left unpunished.

According to the recent report, Google will have to pay $17 million to settle, which is less than a pocketchange for the company. While they did not admit doing anything wrong, search giant’s spokesman said that they have “taken steps to remove the ad cookies, which collected no personal information, from Apple’s browsers.”

If fines remain that big, I am sure Google can keep doing what they are doing forever.
