Seven consumer groups in Europe have filed complaints over Google's "deceptive practices to track users location."
It claims Google is using tricks and and practices so that users enable location tracking features, and that the user is not given straightforward information on what it entails.

Anyone who did pause tracking was told that Google might still, "depending on your individual phone and app settings", collect data about where people went, it said.

"We're constantly working to improve our controls and we'll be reading this report closely to see if there are things we can take on board," said Google.
