In the Wi-Spy incident, Google’s Street View cars gathered private data from consumers’ Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries around the world. So far there has been no adequate public explanation from Google of what the Internet giant intended to do with the information. More than 35 state attorneys general and the FCC are investigating. Charges are pending in a number of countries.

Consumer Watchdog has been working to protect consumers’ online privacy rights and educate them about the issues through its Inside Google Project. Its goal has been to convince Google of the social and economic importance of giving consumers control over their online lives. By persuading Google, the Internet’s leading company, to adopt adequate guarantees, its policies would become the gold standard for privacy for the industry, potentially improving the performance of the entire online sector.
