As per reports, it has been revealed that Google has received a lot of criticism from regulators across the globe, about its Street View code, which gathered confidential information of unsecured wireless networks in May 2007 and May 2010.
The information was gathered through their Street View mapping cars. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said that they got to know about the above information at the time when Google published the document.
An engineer, who was mainly involved in the project, said that he has told two senior officials that the programmee will be collecting some private information. In total, five members were involved in the project, but Google has preferred to maintain secrecy about their identities.
A spokesman for Google was of the view, “While we disagree with some of the statements made in the document, we agree with the FCC's conclusion that we did not break the law”. He further affirmed that the main motive to make the document public was to close the matter once and for all.
Google said that it was fined $25,000, and had to undergo a lot trials due to the case. But now, they hope to put an end to the issue.
