Google has agreed to settle a US lawsuit alleging it invaded users' privacy by tracking them even when they were browsing in "private mode".

The group's stake required at least $5 billion (£3.9 billion) from the world's search engine and parent company Alphabet.

Big tech firms have faced increased scrutiny of their practices in the US and beyond.

Google said it had been upfront about the data it collected when users browsed in private mode, even if many users assumed otherwise. / CNA
