Alphabet Inc Class C (NASDAQ: GOOG) is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. The search engine giant is fighting a legal battle related to its incognito mode.

Alphabet Inc Class C, CEO, will be put through hours of questioning

According to the Bloomberg Industry Group, Alphabet Inc Class C, CEO Sundar Pichai will be questioned for several hours. In addition, a lawsuit was filed against the search engine giant alleging that Google tracks users’ data even in the incognito mode. In this regard, a judge in California recently announced that the corporate house would have to face a class action lawsuit against the allegations.

The search engine was also accused of secretly tracking data

Google is accused of running a data tracking business. As many as three users registered a complaint that the search engine giant Google tracked their data, despite being on the incognito mode. The users reportedly used different internet browsers and discovered data being tracked. The users also reported that all attempts to prevent data theft went in vain.

Google alerts users of data collection

District Judge Lucy Koh recently announced her ruling, in which she stated that Google does not alert its users of the alleged data collection in incognito mode. Responding to this, Google informed that incognito does not equal invisible mode. The search engine giant also clarified that the respective users’ activity could be visible to other websites and services.

This comprehensive tool makes sure that harmful applications and URLs are erased from the users’ phones. The tool automatically scans all the apps on the phone. If a harmful one is identified and detected, Google Play Protect notifies the user and urges that the respective app be erased from the phone. It is just one of the reasons why Android users must have the Google Play Protect.

Applications downloaded outside the Play Store are scanned
