Google ‘Spying’ On People’s App Use, Lawsuit Claims

The lawsuit centers on “Android Lockbox,” a program that “allows Google employees to spy on how Android Smartphone users interact with non-Google apps,” according to McCoy’s complaint, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
