U.K. Court Blocks Mass Legal Action Over Google’s Alleged Tracking of Safari Users

London’s High Court on Monday blocked attempts to bring a collective lawsuit against Google over alleged historical snooping of millions of iPhone users in the United Kingdom.

The lawsuit’s claimants alleged that Google illegally gathered the personal data of over 4 million iPhone users in the U.K. between 2011 and 2012 by bypassing the default privacy settings on Apple’s smartphones which allowed it to track the online behavior of users browsing in Safari.
