We’re suing Google for harvesting our personal info even though we opted out of Chrome sync netizens

A handful of Chrome users have sued Google, accusing the browser maker of collecting personal information despite their decision not to sync data stored in Chrome with a Google Account. The lawsuit was filed on Monday in a US federal district court in San Jose, California. It claimed Google collects IP addresses linked to user agent data, identifying cookies, unique browser identifiers called X-Client Data Headers, and browsing history. Google has previously said it doesn’t use cookies to uniquely identify people and has other methods of matching data to profiles.
