Google is reportedly making it difficult to find Android’s privacy settings.
And Google’s approach to Android privacy has come under fire following the disclosure of an Arizona antitrust lawsuit via phone tracking.
As Engadget reports, recently examined documents in the case show that Google is making Android privacy settings harder to find.
When Google tested an OS release that brought up privacy features, the company reportedly saw greater use of the feature as a “problem” and aimed to incorporate it deeper into the menu system.
This can be checked on the next page. Google personnel admit it is difficult to stop the company from pinpointing the location of users’ homes and offices.
So Google chose to hide the privacy settings in Android 12.
As is known, Arizona is suing Google because it turns out that it has secretly taken user location data for its benefit. Arizona lawyers say Google managed to pressure LG to bury location settings because it was popular.
Google has been improving privacy lately. Android 12 will have an “approximate” location option in addition to the Privacy Dashboard and other controls. However, if the allegations are true, the company may face a tough court battle, they suggest Google is determined to collect data regardless of Android user preferences.
