Do Chromebooks spy on you?
The Chromebooks, iPADS, or other tech devices your child borrows from school each year are digital spies. They are intimately familiar with your child’s private information and browsing habits. When most people think of digital surveillance, images of cameras come to mind.
Can teachers see your camera when it’s off?
No. That is why they call it “off.” Some schools require that cameras be on. If you have a legitimate concern about having your camera on, you should contact the teacher directly, and perhaps you can work out a compromise.
Can school computers see your history?
Yes they can. Remember the words “no expectation of privacy”, it goes for the school’s network as well as their devices, whether you are at school at home or anywhere. Unknown to me, my peers have been tracking my search history for years by logging into my school-issued Google account.
Can administrators see deleted history?
Even when you delete your browsing history, your network administrator can still access it and see what sites you’ve been visiting and how long you spent on a specific webpage. The only way to hide your browsing history from your network administrator is by getting out of the network.
