Google Collects Students' Records, EFF Tells FTC in Complaint

Google has been "deceptively" collecting and mining school children's personal information, including their Internet searches, according to The Electronic Frontier Foundation. In a complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission, the EFF alleges that the "Sync" feature of Google's Chrome Web browser is enabled by default on Chromebooks sold to schools, allowing the Web giant to track and store on its servers "records of every Internet site students visit, every search term they use, the results they click on, videos they look for and watch on YouTube, and their saved passwords."
