A little over a week ago, a report came out targeting Google for misleading wording for its Location History feature. The company's support site previously noted that "With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored", but even so, various Google apps/services still had permission to track your whereabouts.
The company later updated its wording to indicate that users also need to disable Web and Activity Data in order to block other Google apps from tracking their location, but that hasn't stopped one San Francisco resident from suing Google.
The man behind the lawsuit is Napoleon Patacsil, and with this suit, he's claiming that Google's violating both California's Invasion of Privacy Act and the general right to privacy that exists in the state.
Patascsil's lawsuit includes classes for Android and iPhone users alike, meaning that should this go through, it has the potential to impact millions of people all across the United States.
Google's yet to publically respond to this lawsuit, but seeing as how the company previously had a response to defend itself when this news first came up, don't be surprised if this fizzles out into nothing.
