Google Gathered Public WiFi Data For Maps, Connecticut Attorney General Says

Posted: Updated:

A Google spokesperson confirmed to The Associated Press that data was gathered from Connecticut two years ago.

Blumenthal says it could give Google access to personal e-mails, passwords and web browsing histories, though he has no reports of any problems.

Last month, Google acknowledged it had mistakenly collected data over public Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries.

Missouri's attorney general and authorities in Germany and Australia have also launched separate investigations.
