Google has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed in June 2020 that alleged that the company misled users by tracking their surfing activity who thought that their internet use remained private when using the “incognito” or “private” mode on web browsers.

The class-action lawsuit sought at least $5 billion in damages. The settlement terms were not disclosed.

The plaintiffs had alleged that Google violated federal wiretap laws and tracked users’ activity using Google Analytics to collect information when in private mode.

They said this allowed the company to collect an “unaccountable trove of information” about users who assumed they had taken adequate steps to protect their privacy online.
