The Norwegian Consumer Council today revealed that Ui elements are included in their services by both Google and Facebook in order to make users consider privacy options that allow data collection. The Ncc accused both tech giants of using dubious language intrusive privacy default settings and hiding privacy-friendly choices in their apps and services to make things difficult for users. The Norwegian Consumer Council has accused Google and Facebook of exploiting users amid the Gdpr regulations which have recently entered into force in Europe. The Ncc has accused both tech companies of using misleading Ui elements using questionable terminology and hiding from their applications and services privacy-friendly choices. The move makes it perfect for users to prevent the use of their personal information for ads and research purposes through Google and Facebook. The Norwegian Consumer Council also analyzed Windows 10 while revealing that, contrary to Google and Facebook, the settings in Microsoft’s Os are fairly favorable and privacy friendly. The Ncc report concludes that both Facebook and Google make it difficult for users to access privacy-centric settings, and much more efforts are required to deactivate these anti-privacy settings unlike before. The Ncc has strongly criticized Google’s privacy platform with the council saying the tech giant is promoting the sharing of more personal information. The privacy dashboard now has several settings with questionable terminology, and also discourages users from removing any of the features of data collection. Facebook was accused of not making adequate options for users to benefit from the newly placed data protection rights of Gdpr. The Ncc filed its report after a lawsuit against both tech giants hours was lodged by an Austrian privacy advocate into the Gdpr legislation being implemented in Europe. If found guilty, all tech firms may be fined 4% of their respective global annual turnover, or $24 million each. Grip.
