Privacy International, the London-based pressure group, is planning to file a criminal complaint with the UK police over Google's interception of private WiFi data.
The move comes after Google on Wednesday published an audit by third party computer forensics experts into how the data interception happened. Privacy International said the report indicates that the interception was deliberate and therefore in violation of UK wiretapping laws. Privacy International said a third party report showed that the code had been deliberately set to store private data, which is a violation of the UK's Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA).
