Google Has Reportedly Created Internal Tools to Spy on its Employees

While Google remains to be the biggest search engine of the world, it doesn’t mean the company hasn’t faced any criticism over the years. Earlier this year, several reports claimed that the company is playing with idea of creating a censored version of its search engine for China. However, at the time a number of employees protested against the idea. And now, according to a report from Bloomberg the company might be looking at ways to cut down on similar occurrences in future.

According to the report, Google has developed an internal tool that will automatically report employees who schedule a calendar event with more than 10 rooms or 100 employees. While this move suggests that the company might be looking at ways to cut down on protests, Google has denied such claim as it said that the accusations are “categorically false”. In a statement the company said, “This is a pop-up reminder that asks people to be mindful before auto-adding a meeting to the calendars of large numbers of employees.”

Google further claimed that it has created the tool to cut down on the spams associated with calendars and events as the extension does not collect personal information about the users.
