We recently heard that Google would pay a fine of $22.5 million for the privacy violation with regards to cookies on Apple’s Safari browser, Google had previously been accused of violating users privacy on Apple’s Safari browser, where privacy setting were apparently bypassed, and Safari was allegedly tricked into accepting an advertising cookie.
It looks like the fine of $22.5 million has now been approved by the FCC, and once Google pays up this should be the end of the matter, Google can settle the fine without having to admit any liability.
$22.5 million is hardly going to hurt Google, considering how much money the company makes, and how widespread the privacy breach was considering the number of people that use Apple’s Safari browser.
