Google bypass Safari privacy settings

Google using code in their ads to bypass the privacy settings of safari users to know about their searching behavior. Safari - famous for worry-free web that means to prevent companies from tracking the cookies generated by the websites you visit, Safari blocks third-party cookies by default. The privacy breach was uncovered by Jonathan Mayer, a graduate student in computer Relevant Products/Services science at Stanford University with an interest in Cyber Security. Google has immediately issued a statement saying that the Journal mis-characterized what happened and why, and claiming that they used a known Safari functionality to provide features that signed-in Google users had enabled.
