Google allegedly tracking Apple Safari users

Internet firm's search engine accused of bypassing privacy settings on Apple's web browser.



     Google has come under fire after it was revealed its search engines were bypassing privacy settings on Apple's web browser for iPhones and computers.

    Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford University graduate student, said on Friday in a blog post that the US internet and software corporation was using a special code to monitor people's activities when they used Apple's Safari browser.

    Regulators are now threatening to take action against the company.
