Quote:Google failed to inform its users about the exposure of their private data for fear of the news inviting regulation and comparisons to Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Google exposed the private data of hundreds of thousands of users of the Google+ social network and then opted not to disclose the issue this past spring, in part because of fears that doing so would draw regulatory scrutiny and cause reputational damage, according to people briefed on the incident and documents reviewed,” reported the Wall Street Journal, Monday. “As part of its response to the incident, the Alphabet Inc. unit plans to announce a sweeping set of data privacy measures that include permanently shutting down all consumer functionality of Google+.”

Google+ is history, this is positive, and that company is going to be harnessed with regulations out the arse soon. They have it coming.

That data breach is going to cost Google plenty. They are required by law to disclose info like this in a timely fashion.
You can bet there's going to be a big class action suit over the data breach and the balking at disclosure.
