In October 2018, the Google+ stopped working when it was revealed that personal data of its users were leaked.
Although we have known about this error since May 2018 and that information has been leaked from around 500.000 accounts through Google+ API an internal committee of Google decided not to disclose details of the error.
Thus a lawsuit was filed by several plaintiffs against the company.
It should be mentioned that the company refused to take any responsibility during the trial of the case.
"THE Google denies the plaintiffs' allegations, denies any wrongdoing and any liability and believes that no member of the service, including the plaintiffs, was harmed by software bugs, "the email states.
Realistically, this means that each user affected by the error will receive about $ 12 for each valid request, at best. Otherwise, as the FAQ explains, each plaintiff can expect a maximum compensation of $ 5 each. This number may, of course, change depending on the number of users who request payment.
Social network members who submit valid applications can expect to be reimbursed via PayPal or eCheck.
