There are a lot of things that are being added to Google as the company completely continues to innovate and do things in a great way. The company is huge and it continues to be that driving force in the realm of creativity in technology. That is what it strives to be. They try many different things and now, they are not afraid to admit when something does not work. Google Plus is one of those things that they are getting rid of.
- Last March, Google found a significant bug on Google Plus and took steps to patch it up.
- Nearly 500,000 users were potentially exposed by the bug before it was found and fixed.
- Before the bug was fixed the sensitive data that was open to breach included, email addresses, birthdays, genders, occupations, places lived, profile pics and more.
“In what is Google’s Cambridge Analytica moment, the internet giant is under fire for not disclosing a security bug that allowed third-party developers to access Google Plus user profile data since 2015.”
