Opposition to Google’s $22.5m privacy blunder settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission is heating up: lobby group Consumer Watchdog confirmed today it has won the right to file a brief against the deal.

The search-and-ads giant had agreed to pay out after it was caught tracking users of Apple’s web browser Safari by bypassing their privacy settings. But Consumer Watchdog’s privacy project director John Simpson branded the settlement “pocket change” for Google, which also didn’t have to admit to any wrongdoing with the FTC.

The US regulator ended its probe [1] of the company earlier this month.

“Allowing this settlement undercuts the entire regulatory process. Companies and their executives must be held accountable when they violate legal agreements,” Simpson said.
