In an op-ed for The New York Times’ Privacy Project, Google CEO Sundar Pichai writes privacy must be available to all citizens around the world rather than “a luxury good offered only to people who can afford to buy premium products and services.” Pichai highlights the efforts Google has taken to bring privacy settings to all its services and adds while legislation can help offer privacy protections to more people, it is Google’s responsibility to take a stand. “We have a responsibility to lead,” Pichai writes. “And we’ll do so in the same spirit we always have, by offering products that make privacy a reality for everyone.” Meanwhile, the Financial Times reports on the privacy debate around Google’s Face Match camera. The tech company also seeks to dismiss a class-action lawsuit around alleged tracking within its Safari browser. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
