Google is under investigation in Australia following claims that it collects data from millions of Android smartphones users, who unwittingly pay their telecom for gigabytes consumed during the harvesting, regulators said yesterday. It is being reported that the Oracle report had further claimed that Google is consuming around 1GB of mobile data monthly from the account of each Android phone user in Australia. The ACCC is particularly concerned that digital platforms like Google and Facebook have tremendous influence on the advertising market. "The types and quantity of such data that a user's device transmits would depend on the products or services they use, and in some cases a user's settings", it added.
ACCC chairman Rod Sims was quoted in the report as saying his people were looking into the Oracle claims. Regulators found that telecom service customers are unknowingly paying for gigabytes of mobile data mined by the USA tech giant. "Most consumers do not understand the level, granularity, and reach of Google's data collection".
