Google’s offices in Seoul were raided Tuesday by the Korean National Police Agency.
“[We] have been investigating Google Korea on suspicion of unauthorized collection and storage of data on unspecified internet users from Wi-Fi networks,” police said in a statement reprinted widely in the media.
The data collection was related to the upcoming launch of Google’s Street View service in South Korea, police said.
In a blog post on May 14, Google acknowledged that its Street View vehicles mistakenly gathered private information from Wi-Fi networks that were not password-protected while collecting photos for the mapping service. However, it said it never used the data in Google products.
