Google doesn’t respect it. The online search giant was slapped with $22.5 million fine by the Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday for ignoring the security setting of millions of millions of online users.

The 22.5 million fine by the CFTC is equal to the amount of revenue Google collected in just five hours in 2011.
