Brazilian judges have ordered Google to hand over data collected by Street View cameras. Failure to do so would result in a daily fine of $50,000.
The order comes as a result of a complaint from the Brazilian Institute of Computer Policy and Rights (IBDI) which accused the data collection software of accessing private wi-fi network and intercepting personal data. Google equips it’s cars with cameras as well as antennas to take photos of streets — the full features of the antennas are still speculated on.
The US search engine stressed that it had now removed the data collection software from its vehicles.
