Data collected in Chrome’s incognito mode will be deleted by Google following court settlement.

In a landmark settlement, Google has agreed to delete billions of browsing data records collected while users were using their private browsing “incognito mode.” This decision comes as part of a class action lawsuit known as Brown v. Google, where users requested $5 billion in compensation for the data collected during Incognito Mode.

The plaintiffs have expressed satisfaction with this agreement, stating that it signifies true accountability and transparency from the world’s largest data collector. As part of the settlement, Google will make changes to how it reports limits on its private browsing services. Additionally, for the next five years, users will be able to block third-party cookies by default in incognito mode, preventing Google from tracking them on external sites.

This settlement marks an important step toward improving and defending the right to privacy on the internet. It holds Google accountable for the data it collects and ensures greater transparency in its practices. Users can now feel more confident in their privacy while using Google’s services.
