Google faces a fine of tens of millions for the scandal with Safari




An article published by Bloomberg reports that the American Competition Commission (FTC) will impose fines of tens of millions in Google about the scandal had created the company to bypass the security settings in Safari for viewing ads.


Specifically, Google is essentially negotiating with the FTC on how big a fine to be paid for the violation of Safari. If the FTC imposed the penalties mentioned in Bloomberg will be the first time the organization punishes someone for breach of privacy in the Internet.


Remember that Google along with Facebook and other companies had a code that bypasses the security of Safari by depositing cookies to record user activities with a view to targeted advertising. Google has since removed the code and confirmed in the press release announcing initiation of investigations that will fully cooperate with authorities.
