Google is ready to pay $22.5 million in a privacy settlement, according to report released late Monday.
The fine is the largest placed on a single company by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the Wall Street Journal reported. The $22.5 million fine is related to "surreptitiously bypassing" privacy settings of Apple users.
Apparently Google had computer code that would allow Apple's Web browser, Safari, to give it access to users that blocked tracking. Google disabled the code in February and said that the tracking was "inadvertent."
