Google’s Privacy Practices Among Internet’s Worst: Watchdog Group

Google’s privacy practices are the worst among the Internet’s top destinations, according to a watchdog group seeking to intensify the recent focus on how the online search leader handles personal information about its users.

In a report released Saturday, London-based Privacy International assigned Google its lowest possible grade. The category is reserved for companies with “comprehensive consumer surveillance and entrenched hostility to privacy.”

None of the 22 other surveyed companies–a group that included Yahoo, Microsoft and AOL– sunk to that level, according to Privacy International.
