Google fined by German data protection agency for illegally recording unsecured WiFi info

22/04/2013 17:04

BERLIN — A German data protection agency fined Google Inc. 145,000 euros ($189,000) for illegally recording information from unsecured wireless networks — an amount it acknowledged is “totally inadequate” as a deterrent to the multinational giant.

Hamburg’s state data protection agency said Monday that Google admitted collecting data including emails, passwords, photos and chat protocols from 2008-2010 as it prepared to launch its Street View service. Google says it never intended to store personal data and the agency says it has been deleted.
