On the evening of August 4, Beijing time, it is reported that an internal document shows that Google has fired more than 80 employees in the past three years, mainly because it abused the company's internal tools to access user data.

The document shows that in some cases, some Google employees also use these tools to secretly monitor other employees, which violates Google's policy.

Google laid off 36 employees last year, most of them because of improper handling of confidential information, such as sharing it with outsiders, the document said. In addition, due to data security related reasons, Google fired 18 people in 2018 and 26 people in 2019.

In fact, this abuse of user data by employees is not limited to Google. In the middle of last month, it was reported that Facebook had fired 52 engineers in a year and a half, most of whom abused their authority to access and use the personal information of female users they were interested in.

Another Facebook engineer used his employee rights to dig out the information of a woman. Previously, the woman dated the engineer, but later did not reply to his information.

In addition, in 2019, it was reported that snapchat employees abused data access rights and used internal tools to monitor others.
