I have 4 reasons why it needs to be outlawed 1. Teachers can lock your ENTIRE browser down. 2. It is a possible security breach risk waiting to happen. It records EVERYTHING!!! Us students are sitting ducks for hackers. 3. It blocks stuff that is SCHOOL friendly!!! WHY DUDE!!! 4. It is a fourth AMENDMENT violation Because, Teachers can SEE YOUR SCREEN. This Extension is ABSOLUTE MISERY.

god dam this thing sucks! not only does it really invade your privacy it is just out right annoying! this extension should die in hell, and I mean it, it blocks sites that don't even need to be blocked like Paint IO, I like to draw this way it is way easier to focus, [ at least drawing works for me] the extension gets all of your personal info and it is just a nuisance, schools don't use this one and for whoever the hell made this go back to the pits of hell that you came from and go die there for making our life so much harder.

Two things, I know this extension is terrible, and tracks everything you do, but in some schools you have a school account. That account is owned by the school, so the school can track it all they want, and it would not be illegal. Now if the school were to install it on your personal account, THEN it would be against the law, since the school would be invading personal privacy. I have found a way around the darned extension on my Chromebook, but, by law, they can track the account IF it is owned by the school.
