Google will delete billions of records it scooped from “Incognito” mode web browsing of about 136 million U.S. users but will continue to collect data through the not-so-private browser setting — it just has to disclose the grab.

That’s the result of a settlement in a long-running, bitterly fought class-action lawsuit that saw Google, according to a new court filing, sanctioned repeatedly by a federal court judge for hiding information from the other side’s lawyers.
