Google is sued on behalf of millions of iPhone users

29/11/17

A representative action on behalf of approximately 5.4million iPhone users has been launched against Google. The claim seeks damages for Google’s bypassing of the default security settings on the Safari search engine (known as the “Safari workaround”). This enabled Google to track and collate users’ browsing habits - contrary to Google’s public statements that Safari’s default settings prevented this - for use in its targeted advertising service. The representative claimant is Richard Lloyd, former Executive Director of Which?.

Richard Lloyd's press release appears here.

Victoria Wakefield acts for Richard Lloyd, instructed by Mishcon de Reya.
