New Mexico Attorney General Files Lawsuit Against Google
New Mexico attorney general Hector Balderas is suing Google over children's privacy violations, according to The New York Times.
In the official federal lawsuit, it stated, “The consequences of Google’s tracking cannot be overstated: Children are being monitored by one of the largest data mining companies in the world, at school, at home, on mobile devices, without their knowledge and without the permission of their parents.”
Furthermore, Google is being accused of tracking student locations, website visiting data, and stored voice recordings. Google has become the primary tech brand for public schools beating competitors Apple and Microsoft with its cheap and easy to use tools.
This is not the first time Google has been accused of wrongfully using children's data. In September, Google paid a $170 million fine that settled federal and New York State charges.
