Google sued by Texas AG for handling of biometric data of millions


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Thursday sued Alphabet Inc.’s GOOGL, +0.89% GOOG, +0.81% Google, claiming it collected biometric data for millions of Texans without obtaining proper consent. “For more than a decade, Texas has prohibited companies from capturing Texans’ biometric data – including the unique characteristics of an individual’s face and voice – without their
informed, advance consent. In blatant defiance of that law, Google has, since at least 2015, collected biometric data from innumerable Texans and used their faces and their voices to serve Google’s commercial ends,” the lawsuit charges. “Indeed, all across the state, everyday Texans have become unwitting cash cows being milked by Google for profits.” Google was not immediately available for comment.
