New Mexico Attorney General Sues Google for Collecting Kids’ Data

The Infinite Brief
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas sued Google, alleging that its educational software collects young students’ personal information without the required parental consent.

Google called the allegations “factually wrong” and did not respond to a request to elaborate.

The company sells its Chromebook laptops to schools around the world alongside its free or low-cost G Suite for Education software package, which includes email and writing tools.

While there was no evidence that Google had misused the students’ personal information, there is concern that the company might generate revenue from the data.
