Canada’s privacy commissioner said Tuesday that Google’s recent Wi-Fi sniffing was a serious violation of Canadians’ privacy rights and included the collection of personally identifiable information.
Jennifer Stoddart gave the search engine giant until February to implement a series of privacy safeguards; if it complies, she said she will consider the matter closed.
“Our investigation shows that Google did capture personal information – and, in some cases, highly sensitive personal information such as complete e-mails,” Stoddart said in a statement. “This incident was a serious violation of Canadians’ privacy rights.”
