Google stops scanning millions of Gmail accounts linked to an education scheme after reports this might have breached a US privacy law.
Considering that I still use my grad school email address….I’ve noticed. I’m suddenly getting spam in that account that I never got before coming through, and it’s annoying. To me, this is bad customer service for educational institutions. For those who use Google email and other student services honestly, it puts a LOT of people at risk. It’s not just higher ed, but K-12 as well, I’m sure. Not a good move, Google. People need to simply learn to check their junk mail folder if they are expecting something. I’m always checking it, just to be sure.
