Google stops scanning students accounts after lawsuit

Washington, May 1: Google has reportedly claimed that now the company does not scan students’ accounts, after getting sued by the students.

According to Mashable, scanning students’ accounts may violate the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the act that ensures privacy of the students under 18.

However, Google didn’t put any ads on the apps but continued scanning, possibly to gather data for their Adwords program. (ANI)
