At least two other employees
knew

An investigation by the US Federal Communications Commission’s has revealed that Google’s staff knew of WiFi snooping.

According to the report, the engineer who wrote the program told at least two other colleagues. While the Street View team members were unaware of this, one of the two is a senior manager in the company.

The program had the capability to collect data from unsecured networks. The report claims that the engineer" intended to collect, store and review payload data for possible use in other Google projects." The collection of data took place between 2008 and 2010 when Google was taking photos from its Street View car.

Google was fined $25,000 for obstructing FCC's investigation but it was not found guilty of breaking the law. The company said it wants to put the matter behind them.
