Connecticut's attorney general says Google has informed his office that it collected data over the state's public wireless networks in 2008 for its mapping service.
Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said in a Tuesday press conference that he would continue pressing the search engine company to find out what's been done with the data gathered for its Street View feature.
A Google spokesperson confirmed to The Associated Press that data was gathered from Connecticut two years ago.
Blumenthal says it could give Google access to personal e-mails, passwords and web browsing histories, though he has no reports of any problems.
Last month, Google acknowledged it had mistakenly collected data over public Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries.
Missouri's attorney general and authorities in Germany and Australia have also launched separate investigations.
