Google may be able to legally listen in to your Wi-Fi networking
Posted: 19-Apr-2012 [Source: ZDNet]

[If you're working over unencrypted Wi-Fi, Google, and anyone else, may be able to legally listen in to what you're doing.]

By Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols -- "Recently, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed a $25,000 fine against Google for “deliberately impeded and delayed” an ongoing investigation into whether it breached federal laws over its street-mapping service that peeked in on open, unencrypted, Wi-Fi access points (AP). Read that again, Google wasn’t fined for collecting and storing data from unencrypted wireless networks. They were fined a slap on the wrist amount for not answering the FCC questions as quickly and as thoroughly as the FCC would have liked. The actual snooping in on people Wi-Fi AP and communications–that’s OK."
