UK ICO: Google Didn't Take "Significant" Details Over WiFi [bbc.co.uk]
Google did not grab "significant" personal details when collecting data from wi-fi networks, according to the UK's Information Commissioner Office (ICO).
The finding came after the body reviewed some of the data Google scooped up from unsecured networks.
Google said the data was "mistakenly" gathered while logging wi-fi hotspots to help with location-based services.
The ICO said it would closely monitor other global investigations.
