Alphabet Inc.'s Google agreed to pay $23 million to resolve a long-running lawsuit brought by consumers who claimed its search engine shared their queries with advertisers or other third parties without their permission.

The proposed settlement also requires Google to provide added disclosures to consumers about the sharing of search terms.

The deal, which needs court approval, would bring an end to a privacy-focused consumer class action in California that has wound its way through federal courts over the past 12 years.
