Google’s Street View came under a fair amount of criticism for regulators around the world last year after it was discovered that Google’s Street View cars were collecting data from people’s WiFi networks.
One of the countries that previously investigated Google’s Street View was Australia, who ended up ruling that Google had to publish an apology and undertake a Privacy Impact Assessment and also consult with Australia’s Privacy Commissioner regarding future data collection.
After the various investigations into Google’s Street View, it was revealed that the data collection was apparently down to one engineer, and now Australia’s Privacy Commissioner, Timothy Pilgrim has said that they will be taking the next few weeks to review the recent FCC report, and may decide to refer the matter to the Australian Federal Police.
