Denmark bans all Google products publicly | Digital Trends Spanish

The Danish government made a radical decision on Googlesince it prohibited all use of the services of the American giant in the public system, including schools and ministerial entities.

All in order to avoid security leaks and concerned about the low levels of privacy offered by Mountain View.

The decision arises as a result of a specific case of the municipality of Helsingør. The Danish Agency supervised the use of the Chromebooks Y Google Workspace in schools, to later end up blocking its use not only in that municipality, but in all those in Denmark that have an equivalent case.

The data authority has concluded that the use of Google Workspace does not comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. The data from those schools could be being sent to the United States without the necessary levels of security. To prevent this, the use of those Google products is prohibited.

The city council has until August 3 to stop using Google. In addition, they must eliminate all previously transferred data, under penalties of up to 6 months in prison in case of not doing so.
