Wall Street Journal: “Google has agreed to pay $391.5 million to settle allegations that it persistently misled consumers about how it tracked them on mobile phones and other devices.

The settlement, announced by a coalition of 40 state attorneys general Monday, said that Google violated state consumer protection laws by tracking consumers even when their location history setting on their mobile phones was turned off.”

Analyst Comment: The settlement will be split with the states involved in the lawsuit. Will consumers affected by Google’s location tracking get any compensation?
