Google has agreed to pay $7 million Tuesday in regards to the recent lawsuit against Google, news sources reported.
Google was recently sued for using unsecured wireless networks across the nation to gather data for Street View cars during 2008 to 2010, BBC News reported.
The lawsuit was filed by 37 states and the District of Columbia, NPR news reported.
In 2010 Google used 600 gigabytes of personal information such as emails and passwords to photograph with their Street View cars, NPR News reported.
Google said that the data was collected by a rogue code that was mistakenly included in the software of the Street View program, BBC News reported.
"The project leaders never wanted this data, and didn't use it or even look at it," Google said in a statement to BBC News.
