Google Employees Turn to Third-Party Browsers to Sidestep Internal Tool That Tracks Workers

The Infinite Brief
Google is facing a backlash over an internal tool for the company’s Chrome browser that some employees worry is intended for spying on workers.

To get around using the tool, some employees have turned to third-party browsers, prompting at least one security engineer at Google to voice concern over the possible vulnerabilities that using outside software could bring.

The tool, a Google Chrome software extension installed on all employee computers, is designed to activate when workers create calendar events that include more than 100 people or use more than 10 rooms.

Some employees have accused Google management of trying to keep tabs on big gatherings, such as protests and discussing workplace issues.
