The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC)

While you are not able to sign school or district-level privacy agreements at this time with SDPC, when do you project being able to sign?

We can no longer use your product due to the following items:

  1. Students can connect their Facebook account to their DuoLingo school account.

  2. Students can choose to connect with their Google account, which means you capture profile pic, email address, first and last name.

  3. Students have the ability to change their username, email address, and name under "Profile."

Are these changes in the works?

I have been warned that if my students use Duolingo on school computers, I could be held liable. We have been forced to drop Duolingo from our curriculum.

Given the latest performance here...I would be grieved but not at all surprised if this thread goes unmonitored.


I have also just been told by my district that I am not allowed to use Duolingo with my students any longer due to student data privacy concerns. I have not been able to get in contact with Duolingo to discuss it with them either.
