Google have posted an update to “payload data” collection over Wi-Fi network post, “On Friday May 14 the Irish Data Protection Authority asked us to delete the payload data we collected in error in Ireland. We can confirm that all data identified as being from Ireland was deleted over the weekend in the presence of an independent third party (pdf). We’re reaching out to Data Protection Authorities in the other relevant countries about how to dispose of the remaining data as quickly as possible,” Google writes.

Consumer Watchdog called on the Federal Trade Commission to launch an immediate probe of Google’s snooping on private WiFi networks, “Google has demonstrated a history of pushing the envelope and then apologizing when its overreach is discovered,” said John M. Simpson, consumer advocate with the nonpartisan, nonprofit consumer group. “Given its recent record of privacy abuses, there is absolutely no reason to trust anything the Internet giant claims about its data collection policies,” Press note.
