  • A Google class-action settlement is ready to be paid to users.
  • To get money from the settlement, you must be an American and have used Google Search between October 2006 and September 2013.
  • It is likely most people will get less than $8.00.

Back in August, Google’s parent company Alphabet, Inc., agreed to pay out for a class-action suit related to privacy. The suit was related to a 2013 filing that accused the company of “storing and intentionally, systematically, and repeatedly divulging” users’ search queries to third parties. Google refused to admit wrongdoing but agreed to pay out a $23 million settlement.

Today, you can inform the settlement administrators that you’d like some of that Google class-action money. All you need to do is visit the settlement’s website and fill out your information. To be eligible, you must be an American and have clicked on a Google Search result link between October 2006 and September 2013. So that’s pretty much everyone in the United States over the age of 18.
