New Google age-based settings

Google has introduced new age-based access settings globally for Google Workspace Education editions.

As Kavanagh College uses Google Workspace, these changes also affect us.

As a result, student users under the age of 18 get a restricted experience in some Google services when using their Kavanagh College accounts to sign in to Google Services. It may mean some services which students were able to access using their school accounts are no longer able to be accessed.

Some of the services such as SafeSearch and YouTube Restricted Mode were already applied by the school to help protect students from accessing unsafe or restricted content when searching within Google Search and YouTube.
