Google might owe you $12! | HERE’s HOW
Fill the form and claim it!
Google+ may finally be worth something to users. To be very specific, a total of $12 worth.
This news is a result of the past incident of the now-defunct social media platform when on Tuesday morning, users received an ominous-looking email that helpful assured wary recipients by stating:
You are not being sued.
This email was a ‘bug’, which revealed non-public user data to third-party developers, giving way to a resulting class-action lawsuit.
The recent development in this matter of litigation states that you may qualify for a piece of the $7.5 million settlement if:
- You currently reside in the U.S.
- You had a consumer Google+ account between the 1st of January, 2015, and the 2nd of April, 2019.
- You had your ‘non-public Profile Information’ exposed as a result of software bugs Google announced on the 8th of October, 2018 and the 10th of December, 2018.
You can claim your $12 by filing here. Note that you only have until the 8th of October, 2020 to do so.
However, there are a few crucial caveats involved:
- Whether or not you get $12 depends on the number of people that file a claim.
- $12 is the maximum amount you may receive, as explained on the settlement info page. You might receive only pennies.
- The settlement needs to get final approval by the courts, which will be decided on the 19th of November. It is pertinent to mention here that the agreement has been granted preliminary permission, so it should be approved theoretically.
Our suggestion is to fill out the claim. Maybe you end up getting $12 after all.
