GoGuardian watches you, even after the dismissal bell

Administrators block netflix due to its ” inappropriate content” leaving students unable to watch, even at home.

Many schools across the United States have issued chromebooks or laptops to the student population to better help guide them toward educational goals. This gives students the opportunity to easily access their work. But, something that comes along with this is a paid program by the name of GoGuardian.

Administration

GoGuardian allows administrators to monitor and filter any Google powered device. The primary purpose is to keep students on track. But it also serves other purposes such as: catching warning signs,  potential threats, and tracking missing devices. From an administrator’s perspective, I can see why this program does justice. You have the ability to keep everything under control to limit any mistakes.

There is even a mode of the program, Beacon, that specifically looks for struggling students. It searches for students that may be contemplating suicide or self-harm and seeks the help they need. This program keeps students, parents, and schools in a loop to put students first. Which is something I applaud, as paying attention to so many students can be difficult.

Students

On the other hand, through a students perspective, GoGuardian is downright disturbing and overpoweringly invasive even after school hours. While the district can block educationally disturbing websites, they also have the ability to watch screens, open tabs, and lock computers even after the dismissal bell. While some argue that this is for safety, it is also seen as a lack of trust. It is unfair to not allow students to use the device as a personal tool.

Story continues below advertisement

But, if they’re for the student to use, then why is it being so strictly controlled? Especially for students where this may be their only access to the internet at home, the purpose of the new device becomes convoluted. 

Teachers

Teachers are on two different wavelengths in terms of liking and disliking the program. While it has its perks, it causes inconvenience when teachers have to monitor and lock screens. Sometimes teachers forget to unlock screens, preventing students from being able to do their work. Causing them to fall behind. Some teachers forgot to remove restrictions during the fall break which prohibited students from accessing other assignments, websites, etc.

I think this is a program, when done correctly and fairly between both students and teachers, can be beneficial. But it only works when both parties participate and are open. A policy should be put in place that teachers should not block or monitor students on Go Guardian after school hours. Students shouldn’t feel like “Big Brother” is always watching.

Recently, at a Woodbridge Township Board of Education meeting, students from Woodbridge High School and John F. Kennedy High School voiced their issues with Go Guardian as an invasion of privacy. Nothing was put in place to address the student’s complaints after the Board meeting. So, it is up to the teacher to establish and respect boundaries with their students until the District establishes some rules.

    My goguardian is so tight I can’t use 9 out of 10 research websites, and i am watched at lunch, by several teachers at once, even right now, after school hours. And most normal features of a chromebook are disabled. Plus its so rude, they just close everything, they might as well be ripping it out of your hands.

    I am currently being watched, even though I am at home during Thanksgiving break. I hope the person monitoring this is able to read what I am saying. This is very very frustrating as a student. I don’t want to feel creeped out whenever I open my Chromebook and see that GoGuardian is on. I’ve been pushing my parents to buy me a laptop, but we don’t have enough money. I don’t understand why the school would require us to own a Chromebook if we can’t actually use it. I’m talking about beyond educational uses. Sometimes, I need to unwind by watching a video or listening to music. Sometimes, cannot use my personal devices. I understand why we need to utilize GoGuardian during school hours, but afterward, it’s unnecessary. Sure, block inappropriate websites, but don’t block everything. Restricting us like this makes it feel like we are pigs in a pen. I used to chat with my friends on my Chromebook, which would help my mental and social health. Now, I feel isolated, and the rare, fleeting moments I have with them are not enough. It’s also frustrating when teachers will block a website or browsing on Google, and then forget to unblock it after the class period. Overall, the entire experience is frustrating. We don’t like not being trusted. It’s hypocritical to expect us to trust GoGuardian monitors to not leak our information or abuse this power when we aren’t trusted. I really could go on, but I’d just be repeating myself. I hope that there will be a change soon.

    One thing they did teach me in school is that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If you push all of these restrictions and rules onto students, then there is bound to be pushback. It’s science! Students will only develop feelings of hatred, and be more compelled to break rules just for the sake of feeling a sense of triumph over the school. And the more restrictions, the more they will lash out.
    My school recently implemented goguardian, and I despise it. I don’t trust any of the staff or administration anymore, which can be an additional problem because a student is less likely to reach out if they really do need help due to the lack of trust.
    Overall, I absolutely loathe goguardian. It is definitely an invasion of privacy, and also a violation of the 4th amendment, I think. I understand the intention of administrators, but the negative outcome of goguardian will heavily outweigh whatever “benefits” they think it has.

    From a student perspective, I agree with what this says. GoGuardian is undoubtedly a betrayal of trust to the students, and an invasion of privacy. Any teacher with access to GoGuardian can remotely access a student’s chromebook, and look at their search history, lock down certain functions, and basically, do whatever they want on the device. You shouldn’t constantly have to second-guess what you are doing on the device just because there’s some teacher sitting miles away in your school, who may decide to hop onto GoGuardian and look through your search history, access your email, or anything else.

    From a teacher perspective, I can see why GoGuardian might seem like a good idea. The ability to close tabs that students aren’t supposed to have open and open the ones they are, as well as locking the devices down if needed? That would be useful in the classroom, but why don’t they just walk around the room to ensure the students are on-task? Why don’t they have the students put the computers away if they aren’t using them? Not to mention that every teacher can use GoGuardian to watch every move you make on the device, and even take control of it if they so choose.

    GoGuardian is essentially spyware and malware. As I stated above, it can be used to remotely access a student’s computer and look through all the stuff on that device or just watch everything they are currently doing on it (Spyware), and there is no way for the student to remove it, and often times the teachers abuse it by restricting the amount of tabs you can have open, or closing all other tabs, even if it means closing tabs that you need (Malware).

    Its extremely hypocritical for schools to have speeches to tell the students about how they need to be safe online, when they themselves are participating in the very activities that could jeopardize someone on the internet. As I said above, GoGuardian is both Spyware and Malware, possibly more, and in the wrong hands, it could be devastating. What if a hacker got control of the school’s system and stole all the student’s information on their devices because of GoGuardian?

    I could continue this, and turn it into a proper essay, but I think all the points I could make past this (and possibly all the ones I already have) are already in the other comments.

    It is already very obvious that this extension is an invasion of privacy. It also doesn’t address the mistakes of mankind, one of which is forgetfulness. For example, you lock the screen of someone who always plays games in class. When he finishes the work, you forget to unlock the screen.

He was able to see it, but not able to shut it down. He walked over to me and told me no music in the classroom. He was also going through my search history and watching me type .

    GoGuardian is very ridiculous. During the day my teacher ALWAYS turns on GoGuardian and is ALWAYS spying on us and it’s getting annoying, my teacher has blocked so many websites to the point where I can’t even count. Especially after school hours it’s unbelievable, if I try to search up something I wanna know, for example a passage that is educational I guess, it would always have a blue lock in the middle of the screen. The WORST part is that they can track your LOCATION. I don’t like this at all, I don’t recommend. But if you would like your teachers to stop watching you, I suggested you add your school account to your personal computer. (If you have) If you are on your personal computer there is no possible way that you teachers can watch you.

    I really hate goguardian. Whats the point on spying on kids when you can just sit at the back of the class? Teachers think its good to have goguardian to spy and block websites easier (Accept for teachers who hate goguardian as well.) Goguardian As what i heard can now see where you are which is very very scary because tracking the location they are in is not necessary if its just to see what the student is doing. If you go to extensions and pin goguardian it will be easier to know if your teacher is watching you or not. Teachers have also been blocking websites permanently Which is a white screen with reset on top left which means its permanent block. Which is not fair because they could secretly go on websites that COULD OR NOT be inappropriate for school and when they are showing there screen they could just close or hide the tab. Ok enough talk about what could teachers do. Goguardian should be illegal for seeing other screens, tracking location and being able to as well control the screen. If you go to youtube.com and search up how to disable goguardian those can help you or go to https://www.change.org/p/students-ban-goguardian?redirect=false to ban it ( i don’t know if i works for not trying it lol). SO now teachers should feel the pain of students be tortured by goguardian or Always seeing it every day and the only day where they are free is summer and vacations. Every ones rate for goguardian for all those abilities it has is not even a 2 which means NEED WORK BUT NOT RECCOMENDED AT ALL and soon if goguadian cant get it own break there might be a parade of people with signs saying “BAN GOGUADIAN” or “GOGUADIAN SHOULD HAVE NEVER EXISTED”. So yeah my rate for goguadian is -Inf/0 (Negative infinite out of zero.). End of comment

      My computer always has GoGuardian activated, even on the break. I was doing homework over the winter break, and one of my teachers forgot to turn it off. Whenever it got to the time I would have 3rd period (around 9:30-10:00), the four-tabs limit got turned on. Almost all of the stuff I was using got closed out.

    I think GoGuardian is an invasion of privacy. As a student, I see the reason why you would do it but when you are not at school they shouldn’t restrict things you like. This is my only way of using the computer in some places so I can’t do some things. I understand keeping kids on track when you are in school just like teachers used to but after school, it is an invasion of privacy which is literally AGAINST THE LAW. That is a federal offence they need to stop popping in and out of our lives where they aren’t even welcome! I wanted you to watch me I would invite you to my house and make you follow me around! Also, some people might say they don’t operate the restrictions and it is automatic, but it’s not! one day I was playing my new favorite game on my computer but the next day when I was excited to play it was restricted. So not only is that proof they watch you but they also close you out of things in just a few hours! They are cutting us off from our freedom as I speak, more and more sites being closed every day! THIS IS NOT OKAY! DOWN WITH GOGAURDIAN! They aren’t guarding us they are cutting us off! Off from games! Even when we have the freedom to do what we want after school! DOWN WITH GOGAURDIAN! end of the story.

        GoGuardian is, in my opinion, really creepy. Not only can it block websites, but it can MONITOR YOUR EVERY ACTION. which I can see how it would be seen as a good thing from an administrator’s pov, but in all seriousness, this is quite literally verging spyware. As a student, I technically don’t have a say in whether this is used or not, but it does make me uncomfortable. Some students, such as myself don’t have a home account, and when on my device at home, I have to log in on my school account, to which I am reminded that this can probably still be active in my free time. creepy.

    I’m gonna be honest, I HATE GOGUARDIAN. As a student, it is very disturbing to me and blocks out all fun websites. Now, a lot of teachers are depending on GoGuardian a lot, to SPY! Tabs can be seen, EVEN YOUR WEBCAM! Because of this, I always get bored all the time and always end up sad and anxious. If any principal or teacher is reading this, I recommend to never use GoGuardian again or any type of blocker. If you are not using blockers, GOOD. If I were to rate GoGuardian, it would be -9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999/10.

    Well, knowing that this is a monitoring app for students, I think that it would be fine if it wasn’t able to see through your camera or know where you are. That would be downright disturbing. Other than that, GoGuardian would be fine without those abilities. In my opinion, it can be kind of bad because some students, who might be doing virtual school now, could be using the bathroom while on a Zoom meeting, and they aren’t turning on the camera. So instead, they turn on the camera with GoGuardian. Students should have to ability to accept or decline if they would want GoGuardian to do that. Or at least ask their parents. So there are always mixed feelings. But now because it has a tracking device and can see your camera without permission, this is considered illegal spyware and can be harmful to other’s privacy

It is an invasion of privacy and kids should be allowed to have fun once they are done with their work. I have even been asked to use it after school!!! I have been threatened to be fired so I use it. I use it but I still allow kids to play games. Please, stop Goguardian. Thank you for reading this.

    Its a complete invasion of privacy, its used for purposes it shouldn’t be used for by teachers, and when I work on homework in my bedroom, who knows if teachers are watching?!
    online I choose who I want to share information with. GoGaurdian removes that ability
    and to my fellow students who are blocked on sites, go to translate.google.com and type the blocked site url, then click the translation link in blue, and its unblocked temporarily. if you pin the gogaurdian extension, itll turn blue when you are being watched

    First of all, I am a student in general. I gotGoGuardian on my gaming computer and brought it to school. I hop on GoGuardian and (because I am evil) block GoGuardian for the whole school. So the teachers started to freak out screaming “WHO DID THIS TO US,” and I smirked at my classmate behind me and unblocked everything on the students Chromebooks (even the bad stuff on accident) So, if anyone sees this, I am a true hero for my entire school that day.

    Ok, so im a little bit scared ngl bc i was in class today and i have my own personal ASUS Chromebook and I do not have a phone (I’m in middle school btw) and i was in class and I honestly have a hard time maintaining focus when I’m learning so I need short breaks to relax and i also listen to music while doing work and then all the sudden my history teacher LOCKED all of my stuff and I had to shut down my computer several times and it would not work so he marked me absent in his class but he’s the one who locked me out of everything and literally all i was doing was watching a short yt video. And the fact that they are spying on us is wrong, i get it if its for a school Chromebook but a personal Chromebook c’mon that’s just wrong and even with the school Chromebooks we need our freedom and should have some free time from teachers, i was so close to going off on my history teacher because I need privacy, this is creepy and we need to get them to ban this crap.

    It’s really weird. Some teachers will leave it monitoring after their class is done, meaning they’re causing problems for other teachers that have to use it. One of my teachers even talked about how she can watch us without us knowing. If this wasn’t a professional (well… not really) setting, this would be something you would report to the authorities! A lot of kids in my area don’t have other devices and have to use these chrome books for everything. The teachers are always talking about respecting people’s privacy, but they then prove otherwise by monitoring with this program. I understand its use for testing, but it really shouldn’t be used for anything else.

    (And to the teacher who claims students share their entire lives online, why are you actively looking for your students social media? It’s not exactly easily to find an exact person’s social media unless you are searching for it. Seems a bit sketchy that you would even “joke” about that when I believe that teachers aren’t allowed to basically stalk their students.)

    I don’t have gogaurdian on my Chromebook, but from these threads, I can tell this is extremely disturbing to a lot of students. I found out about it through a Youtube Ad. I´m super grateful to have other personal devices can use. God, it sounds like a nightmare. *shudders*

    I don’t really like it I am in 5th grade and I don’t think my teacher is monitoring me, but she has said to the whole class that she can see our screens whenever she wants. It’s just disturbing for me that my teacher could choose to stalk me every second of every day. My parents are both teachers and I’m not positive but I think my dad uses it for his high school kids, but what really make me uncomfortable. It’s the fact that I need an alt google account to have it stop watching me. Even on my other devices. I have tried to remove the extension but gogaurdian even blocked me from removing itself!

    Hey um i dont think goguardian should have the ability to access your computer after school hours. like many people, this is the only devices i have to my name and i really cant do nothing on here cause of it. i dont mind it that much because my teacher dont use it intill after school (which i dont understand) but i dont like the idea of the teacher being able to access your camera and mic because theirs some times i showered and got dressed with my computer in the bathroom on school hours. before you even say “no us teachers dont have access to those thing” um yes yall do… have you ever been in a meet or zoom and it asks you are you talking or the host wants u to unmute? i really dont like the site i think they should do some stuff for the students safety not just the teachers but yeah..

    I found this while looking over my chromebook extensions and was horrified to find this article, and after reading these comments i have lost my faith in the school system completely. if people can see everything i do and can stop people from doing anything on a computer because they want to…. i mean its crazy. if we went to school in person (more) or everyone had a device i could understand the goguardian being installed, but now people are being forced to isolate themselves because they need to focus on the school work. I cant speak for everyone but if something like that happend to me or my friends we would just stop and say F that imma head out. Some other people might just give up and fall into depression, because that’s what happens when someone is isolated from friends and all ways to distract themselves from a horrible situation. and if you use goguardian to do that your a tyrant and a horrible person no question. and yes i wrote this on a school (after writing part of this I learned they patched it so teachers cant look through cameras or hear through mics) but this is just a horrible thing to subject kids to or anyone for that matter.

    2. for the people who said Oh just use a different device, well the crappy school chromebooks might be a persons only way to acces the internet or dont have their own personal device.
    3. what if people who do have their own personal device, also are forced to install it on their OWN PERSONAL DEVICE. i wish adults would get smart and understand what the hell online privacy and privacy in general is.
    4. I do not want to hear any thing else such as backlash comments or sass towards me. I am one of the many people who dont have their own personal devie and are forced to use these frickin school chromebooks which yes yes i know they are school property and should be used for school related crap blah blah. well i guess you dont know what it feels like to not have your own personal device.

    I concur with all who say this installation is unfair. Honestly, stop teachers, stalking is illegal until BOOM! school decides to legally break that law with GoGaurdian. If you’re gonna stalk me and frame me, and say I’m craving attention, I’m gonna revolt. The teachers are fine, honestly, BUT they invade all crevices of my privacy and give me nightmares. They decide to add this force install 3RD PARTY APPLICATION MIND YOU, then use it to monitor me and bar me to a dull screen, my parents won’t let me go to in person, so I have to deal with various disturbances, and then when I need a break, Oh LeT’s ClOsE hIs TaB aNd EmAiL hIs PaReNtS. And since one of them who has buttered up my parents for 4 YEARS is the only one who does email them, and when she does, they believe her in an instant and grounds me. It’s a vicious cycle of lying and stupidity that has stayed in my family for a long time, but it’s ending with ME! I will request proof of the misbehaving and if they provide, I will talk with my child and see if we can reach a consensus on what happened, what they feel the punishment should be and how long to be in effect. I will not stand for the tyranny shown in the school system, and unless my child wants it, they will not go into the gifted program, as to not repeat my mistakes.

    i think goguardian is disturbing and should be banned. i understand that some people use school devices but that’s no excuse for invading their students privacy. we need our little brain breaks here and there, we also need this device to google things that we can’t access anywhere else, and we also need our basic human rights. i know for me, staying focused is hard, but isnt there any other possible way for us to stay focused instead? i feel uncomfortable IN MY OWN HOUSE due to the fact that they are able to see through your camera at ant time of the day (not when ur computers closed luckily). goguardian might seem like a good idea to all you teachers in here, but what if you were a student and something like that was happening to you, and resulted in you feeling uncomfortable? another reason why i am so upset is because they can track your location. i have heard of many teachers who are predators or just down right weird and what if they come to your house? not saying it will happen but its a possiblity. more reasons is because why didnt the students get a say in this? this is a huge thing that impacts teachers and students, but why did only the teachers get to join in on the agreement, i mean, this impacts students a lot more so its unfair for us to not have a say in this? i know this is long but i am very upset about this because i feel deprived of my rights as a citizen who has a voice. i need things as a human and goguardian makes it hard to fulfill these needs.

    To be honest, GoGuardian is a fairly decent software since it is useful for teachers to make sure students aren’t cheating during assignments, going on unnecessary/inappropriate websites, and not randomly surfing the web during school hours. Like others said, if it is the school’s property, it belongs and should be free for the school to monitor, track, and manage. Although it would be out of hand if the school abuses GoGuardian, such as monitoring you through the spyware after school hours, on your own devices monitored in your own domain, or overriding the students access or blocking them out completely from their device for longer than necessary. Personally, I ‘m fine with this GoGuardian software because I rarely get unfocused or need breaks from school hours.

    I personally hate GoGuardian. As a student with ADHD, I need to take little breaks here and there to focus properly. I used to do that by listening to music or watching short videos on YouTube. Ever since my school started using GoGuardian, they blocked Spotify, YouTube, Reddit, and a gazzilion other websites I use to not get distracted. I mean, I get that this Chromebook I am using is school property, but it is the only way I can access the internet for me. When I was doing e-learning after Christmas break, I would sometimes have to look up something on Google or watch a video explaining a concept to me further, but my teachers kept closing those tabs EVEN AFTER SCHOOL HOURS. This is just ridiculous and an invasion of privacy. GoGuardian is just another way to discourage students and have them get into trouble for the littlest things.
    Tip for bypassing GoGuardian (this always works for me):
    as soon as you open a “fun tab” on the weekend, open a bunch of other school related tabs to cover it up so your teacher doesn’t catch you

    One time, when I was doing homework at home, like at 9:00 PM, My teacher just closed my tabs and locked my chromebook for fun, Just to see how i react, and because of that, I had to miss 1 week of school and get a referral for not coming to school. And when I wanted to access my scchoolwork from my personal device, It said LOCKED, and a google metting popped up, and i tryed to close it, but it did not close. Then when i checked my mail, It said, “Why were you playing Madalin stunt 3 yesterday at 6:00 PM, And arent you too young to drink coffee?”GoGaurdian Just takes away your priyvacy at home, and I do not accept it.It even checks your room at home, which takes it away to a diffrent level, even in your personel divice. GoGaurdian and all other monitoring divices should be banned!!!

    I don’t like it. I get that GoGuardian is supposed to help us, but it is an invasion of our privacy. All of my teachers have said that it’s the same as them looking at your Chromebook in class. it’s not. The fact that they can now see what we’re typing, what we have been typing, see our browsing and search history, that’s not ok with us. Yes, yes, some of you might say, just use another device. But for some students, like me, this is our only way to access the internet, and since I don’t have a phone, the only way to contact my friends. One of my teachers said that anything we have typed on our Chromebooks is available, our history is available, tabs that we are not currently on are available, and pretty much anything on our computers is available. We may technically be kids, but especially now, when most of us are stuck inside with only our family, WE NEED OUR PRIVACY. Adults for some reason don’t seem to get that. I get that we need to do our work, but most of us get it done anyway, regardless of us listening to music or watching youtube. Actually, if you are a teacher at my school, or someone who works in the office, STOP READING. I find this to be an extreme invasion of our privacy, and I know other students do too.

    Now seriously, the part of this program that is helpful from my perspective is to be able to monitor tests, but do you honestly believe that as a teacher or as the administration, we watch you when the bell rings. If we want to do that, we’ll add you to our facebook pages, you’ll accept us, you accept everyone. We have lives kids. It’s okay. We’re not watching you, we’re grading your work.

    Now I don’t know if your teachers can actually see through your camera, which would be very disturbing. And yes it is annoying how you can’t go on all websites, but on the other hand it is a school device, and it’s made for school related stuff only. I see why kids would want to go on games and other websites. But that’s not what school devices should be used for. I don’t think it’s ok that the teachers can watch your screen whenever they want. But you shouldn’t have a problem with Guardian if you’re actually using your school device for what it’s supposed to be used for

    Speaking as a student, GoGuardian is sorta like a privacy invasion. But, don’t get me wrong, it is a school device. But being able to access a camera and microphone is a whole other level. Some students need privacy, now GoGuardian is supposed to help you stay focus, but including after dismissal? Students should be able to access what they want as long as it’s not inappropriate, I don’t have access to Youtube for example. But student’s voices have to be heard by the school board.

    2nd. They don’t let you go to already-blocked-websites during the weekend
    3rd. It gets on some peoples home devices
    Also:
    My friend got locked out for a reason, which is fair, but what if the teacher forgets?
    I still think there should be a lock-out-timer
    I was a bit too crazy saying “BANNED” on my previous comment

    I don’t really know if GoGuardian is so bad, but I can’t go to non-school websites, even before I found out my password on my gmail account, because I had to do “Forgot Password”. The thing that really hits me is that when my BFF got locked out of her device in 2nd grade. Couldn’t GoGuardian do a timeout thing, and the teacher would set the time limit, and could turn it off when wanted??? Locking people out of their chromebooks just DOESN’T make sense. And if it locks me out of my iPad (which never happened), this thing should, but no offense, be BANNED for our safety.

    As a teacher, I believe I have too much power.

    I think this is stupid and a invasion of privacy. Teachers should not have the ability to lock devices and cheak history and close tabs. No one wants a teacher watching over them and cheaking everything they do

    I really don’t understand why people hate it i get it its creepy and all but if your using a school device They have the rights to do anything but if its your personal device that is crossing the line thats the part when you use reverse card

    GoGaurdian is a disrespect of students privacy, I’ve had people show me its on their home computer and there teacher’s watch them on their own device and a non school account, THIS IS NOT OKAY!!

    If it is the schools computer, the school has the right to monitor that device whether it is on campus or off campus. Use your own device to goof off.
