In a class action lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Google is accused of tracking user activity via various mobile apps – even if users have refused to disclose their data.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday with the California Northern District District Court against the technology giant, as Reuters reported. The complaint accuses Google of logging users' messaging apps, ridesharing, and other types of apps, even if tracking was disabled in their account settings.

"Even if consumers follow Google's instructions and disable tracking of" web and app activity "in their" privacy policy ", Google continues to intercept consumer app use, communication, and personal browsing of apps and personal information "says the lawsuit.

Digital Trends turned to Google for comment on the lawsuit. We will update this story when we hear something.

This is the second lawsuit against Google within the past month. The same law firm filed a complaint in June, accusing Google of tracking the activities and habits of the Google Chrome browser, even when a user was in incognito mode.

This lawsuit alleges that Google's incognito mode gives users the wrong impression that their internet use is not being intercepted and is deliberately misleading them into believing that they are in control of their browser information.
