The Federal Trade Commission released on March 26 its final privacy report that outlined how companies should address consumer privacy. The Post’s Cecilia Kang and Hayley Tsukayama take a look at some of the privacy cases that the FTC has handled recently, including probes of Google Street View, Twitter and Facebook.
A Google Street View car is seen in Washington in 2011. In October 2010, the FTC dropped its probe into a privacy breach that occurred when the company's Street View cars collected data from WiFi networks. The move came after Google promised to beef up on privacy training. At that time, the FTC said that the company did not put enough emphasis on privacy. Oliver Lang/DAPD Buy Photo
