We’re boned: Google bypassed Apple Safari privacy

“Google and others companies has been bypassing Safari security measures and tracking users of Apple’s Web browser on their iPhones, iPads, and computers without their knowledge, a report by the Wall Street Journal shows.

“The Wall Street Journal report shows the search engine giant and several advertising companies had inserted a special code that tricked Safari, which is designed to block tracking cookies, into letting them follow the online behavior of its users.

“After the Wall Street Journal contacted Google, the company disabled its code.”

MrMild says there’s no more privacy anyway.

I found the report here: Google privacy Apple Safari: Google bypassed Apple Safari privacy – OrlandoSentinel.com.
