State attorneys general announced the settlement Monday.

They're calling it the largest multistate privacy settlement in U.S history.

Officials say the investigation by the states was spurred by a 2018 Associated Press story.

The officials say they found that Google continued to track people’s location data even after they opted out of such tracking.
