Google Invading Student Privacy With Chromebooks

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is accusing Google of invading the privacy of students in violation of the Student Privacy Pledge the search giant signed in 2014.

The EFF's complaint alleges that Google has enabled by default the "Sync" feature on its Chrome browser for chromebooks sold to schools, which monitors and collects data on internet searches, websites visited, saved passwords, and videos viewed by US students using the laptops from kindergarten through to the 12th grade in order to improve its digital services.
