Google Ordered to Delete Street View Data Collected in the UK!

Privacy is definitely front-page news these days! Adding to the already hot topic is the recent news that Google has been ordered to delete the data collected by its Street View cars in the United Kingdom including personal information such as passwords, emails, and URLs (collected via WiFi).

The company had been asked to have all data including personal information to be deleted previously but had not complied. Human error is being blamed in this case, as Google continues to be scrutinized by the UK Information Commissioners Office (ICO), although no evidence has been found that the company had been attempting to purposefully gather the payload data on a corporate level.

With the public growing increasingly weary of “big brother”, Google will need to assure their customers that they’re still safe and secure and delete the data within the 35 day deadline given to them by the ICO. Today’s news also serves as yet another reminder that anything on an unsecured wireless connection is up for grabs. Surf with caution.
