(Indianapolis, IN) - Indiana has reached a multi-million dollar settlement with Google. In a press release Thursday, state Attorney General Todd Rokita announced that the tech giant will pay the Hoosier State $20 million.
The lawsuit stems from Google’s location tracking. Rokita alleged the company was not up-front about using data from Hoosiers to build detailed user profiles and target ads.
Rokita opted out of a larger suit involving other states, which he says resulted in a larger settlement for Indiana.
Also on Thursday, the Attorney General’s Office announced that it is still pursuing two lawsuits against TikTok for misleading children and luring them toward inappropriate and potentially dangerous content.
