Google Turns off Email Scanning in GAFE Enterprise Accounts

In my recent article, “Those Terms of Service on Popular Ed Tech Websites DO Matter” I brought up the fact that Google was currently embroiled in a lawsuit in California related to scanning student gmail accounts within their Google Apps for Education (GAFE) Enterprise accounts. Today on their official blog, Google has announced that it has fully turned off this feature in their GAFE suite to assuage any concerns about invading the privacy of students and teachers.

You can read more about this announcement on Google’s Official Blog.
