Google to pay nearly $400 million over deceptive location tracking practices - The Record by Recorded Future

Google has agreed to pay a $391.5 million settlement with 40 states over revelations that it continued to track users’ locations even when told explicitly not to. 

The AP found that Google misled users into believing they could turn location tracking off within their account settings when in fact the company continued to collect location information within its Web & App Activity feature, which is automatically turned on when a user creates a Google account or uses an Android phone.
