I can’t get it to my head either Google is really that unsafe and uncivil to use such practices that endanger users’ privacy and its own goodwill, or is it just a secret campaign to let down the Internet giant.
According to report appeared on Bloomberg on Friday FTC is examining whether Google embedded cookies in Apple’s Safari in order to target the ads or not, further the violation of a consent decree is also being probed.
Google singed the consent decree with FTC last year, planting cookies into Safari without the consent of users clearly violates that certain decree.
A spokesman from Google said the planting of cookies was only done to develop a connection between users using Safari and Google servers to check whether they are logged-in to Google and to other content. In a response to FTC’s investigation he added “We will of course cooperate with any officials who have questions.”
