Google has previously said that it had received a number of complaints about users being able to view the Google News feeds on the cookie presses.
It’s now clear that the problem has been around for some time, but that Google is trying to find a way to help the problem go away.
Google says it will now only allow users who use Google Analytics’ Cookies to access their news feeds, and only allow them to access those news feeds by clicking on the banner below the Google banner that says, “Do not use Google’s cookies”.
Google has also added a warning on its website that it has “found that some of our advertisers have been able to manipulate our data and use it to make more money through advertising, including by providing targeted ads to Google search results.”
In the last few months, Google has also faced some criticism over the issue, with many users complaining about the lack of transparency surrounding the cookie use.
Google is currently investigating whether it is doing enough to ensure that its users are getting the best out of its services.
It has previously denied it was making any money from its cookie usage, saying it only made money if users paid for it.
Google told The Register that it was investigating whether the issue was affecting other parts of its service, but had not decided if that was the case at this stage.
“We are working with our partners and other organisations to identify and address the issue,” a Google spokesperson told TheRegister.
We will provide further updates as they become available.”
