Google is to delete the sensitive information – including full emails and passwords – it illegally captured from Wi-Fi networks when its Street View cars mapped the UK's towns and cities.
The technology giant has signed a commitment (PDF) to improve its data handling following the Information Commissioner's Office ruling that it committed a "significant breach" of the Data Protection Act (DPA) during the mapping in the past two years.
The ICO will also audit Google's compliance with the DPA in August 2011.
