Overview
This service is used by the Gopher Buddy Chrome extension for recommending Chrome OS version updates and managed Chromebook environments.
The Gopher Buddy Service is a partner API to the Gopher Buddy extension that must be enabled on a G Suite Domain before the Gopher Buddy Extension can work.  This service is responsible for performing the device version and user lookups required for the Gopher Buddy Extension to function. 

The Gopher Buddy Chrome Extension partners with the Chrome Gopher Add-on to boost your fleet’s OS health and offers high-resolution usage history and network IP reporting on Chrome devices, as well as a handy way for students and staff to access key device info.

Gopher Buddy:

1) Extends the reporting powers of the Chrome Gopher Add-on for Sheets to include user sessions that capture username, local & public IP address, start time, and session duration in minutes.

2) Gives logged-in G Suite users permission-based access to recent session info and device metadata like SN and Asset ID from the logged-in context.

3) Nudges users to help prevent Chrome devices from falling more than 3 version behind in their OS updates.

How does it work?

In order to gain these new powers, the Gopher Buddy extension must interact with the Gopher Buddy Service, an Amplified Labs hosted API that must be installed and authorized by a G Suite administrator and have a valid trial or paid license.    The Gopher Buddy Service is responsible for looking up Chrome OS version (depends on device model) and looking up and logging and storing user session details in an external datastore.

NOTE: Gopher Buddy is a ***PAID SERVICE*** bundled as a part of our Chrome Gopher Premium, Gopher Pack, and Labs Unlimited offerings. See https://labs.amplifiedit.com/gopher-buddy

To be honest, I didn't know that Gopher Buddy is a spyware. I was going to write an review on how annoying it is but what the reviews made by my fellow students, this is an undercover extension that some students never now about (like me the kid with the ADHD) this is a spyware. If students that didn't know that this is a way for school admins to make sure you are on task and they check out all the reviews here, they would be angry and try to remove this extension like the videos on how to remove securly but I can't wright review because I'm currently on a school computer and schools blocked to wright a review on securly so now I'm done talking about securly. Back to the reason why I'm here, like the copypastas say, "So just copied this from google ¨Gopher Buddy Service - G Suite Marketplace. This service is used by the Gopher Buddy Chrome extension for recommending Chrome OS version updates and managed Chromebook environments. very uncool it's spyware which if a hacker with malicious intent was to bypass this would know all the details to people who use it.¨ notice the ¨VERY UNCOOL IT´S A SPYWARE WHICH IF A HACKER WITH MALICIOUS INTENT WAS TO BYPASS THIS WOULD KNOW ALL THE DETAILS TO PEOPLE WHO USE IT.¨ If all us school kids rise up and start an online revaluation we could defeat this Communist spyware extension. Fight on Gamers." if the copypasta is true, then hackers can just attack schools using this extension and what is ironic is that our schools are trying to protect us by putting us in danger with hackers. Thank you for taking the time from your day to read this review.

Please delete this, we students need our privacy and besides, you can get other extensions that automatically update Chrome WITHOUT doubling as a spyware that stalks us everywhere we go online.. Also, I know you're reading my review through this software, so could you please actually do something about this instead of ignoring it or pretending you didn't see this, admin?
