Student BYOD and Privacy
Question: Does GBHS spy on students personal devices?
Answer: All your internet use whilst at school is filtered and recorded. This information can be looked at if there is reason to believe you are using the internet inappropriately.
Use Google Takeout to transfer your School Google files from Gmail, Drive etc to your own Personal Gmail account.
Note: You cannot take your GBH school email address with you - it will be suspended when you leave... So don't sign up to things using your school email address if it is for personal use - use your own gmail account, not your school one.
Have you tried the Google Security Checkup?
The Security Checkup gives you personalized recommendations to secure your account...try it: https://myaccount.google.com/secureaccount

Microsoft Office 365 for Students - if you wish to have a copy of this installed on your own device for free please go to this site and register with your school email address. Note: You must be over 13 years of age. Please only install this if you think you need Microsoft Office on your own device. It is quite a big programme so it will take up room on your computer, and it will stop working when you leave our school. Here is a PDF with all the information.
We recommend using Google Workspace for Education - but Office 365 is available for students who would like it.
