The National Center on Sexual Exploitation recently removed Google’s Chromebook from their “Dirty Dozen List” after the company announced changes to help protect children from sexual exploitation while using its devices.
The NCOSE’s lists feature tech companies that alleged profit from the sexual exploitation of children and its users.
“Given the safety measures that have been implemented as of today, we have removed Google Chromebook from our 2021 Dirty Dozen List,” Lina Nealon, director of corporate and strategic initiatives for NCOSE, said. “The improvements were long sought-after by NCOSE and its allies and ultimately will limit the amount of exposure to harmful content and potential predators through school-issued Chromebooks.”
“Google’s move to default devices and products to safety for kids is now an industry standard, and we urge other tech companies to follow suit,” Nealon added.
