Google has agreed to settle a lawsuit brought on by Washington state with a payment of $39.9 million.
The lawsuit alleged that Google misled users about its location tracking practices.
The state claims that Google profited from the location data of its users even when they had disabled tracking on their devices.

In what’s Google’s second multi-million dollar legal settlement this week, the tech giant will cough up $39.9 million to resolve a lawsuit over misleading location tracking practices. Google will pay the sum to Washington state over claims that it deceived users into believing they had control over their location data.
