Parents with children prone to playing on their phones and tablets – and illicitly purchasing Candy Crush lives – can breathe a sigh of relief.  Google has settled a Federal Trade Commission complaint alleging that it wrongly billed customers for unauthorized in-app Google Play purchases by children playing on Android devices.  The tech company will now be required to pay a minimum of $19 million in refunds to account holders who paid but did not receive refunds for in-app charges that were incurred by a minor accidentally or without the account holder’s authorization.  According to the FTC, such charges are considered “friendly fraud,” which is committed by someone the victim knows.  As a result, by billing account holders for such charges without their express consent, Google caused “substantial injury to consumers that consumers themselves cannot reasonably avoid” and thereby violated Section 5(a) of the FTC Act, which prohibits “unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce.”
