Does the internet threaten our privacy?
The Information Commissioner's office will look again at what personal data has been gathered by Google from private wi-fi networks. Is enough being done to protect our privacy?
The UK's privacy watchdog examined a sample earlier this year after it was revealed that the internet giant had collected personal data during its Street View project. At the time, Google said no "significant" personal details were gathered. But it has since admitted that e-mails and passwords were copied.
On its official Google blog, senior vice president Alan Eustace wrote that the company was "mortified" to discover, that personal information had been collected.
Privacy watchdogs in numerous countries, including France, Germany and Canada, had also investigated the information.
Are you concerned about privacy on the internet? Who should be responsible for personal data on the web? How can privacy be improved?
