How can you help protect your student’s information?
Whilst your school provides your student’s Department username and password to Google to enable them to only access their own information on G Suite for Education, there are some things that you can do to help keep their information safe.
Remind them not to share passwords with anyone, as they cannot be sure how secure another person will be with their details.
Teachers will remind students to only use G Suite for Education for activities related to schoolwork.
Talk about appropriate uses of technology at school and at home. Remind them that anything uploaded to G Suite for Education can be viewed by teachers.
In rare cases, Google’s technical support team may have access to information stored in G Suite for Education.
Please note that Google will never contact you or your child directly. If you or your child are contacted by anyone claiming to be Google support, contact your school immediately.
