Class action against Google in U.K.

The group ‘Google You Owe Us’, led by former executive director and government adviser, Richard Lloyd, is launching a class action against Google UK for abusing the trust of its consumers. According to the group, Google unlawfully collected the information of its users by bypassing security settings on their iPhones. This was done by installing ad-tracking cookies on the devices of Safari users, whose default setting is to block such cookies. This raises the question of how Google uses cookies.
