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

Kinda creepy in my opinion. Started online school three weeks ago and it suddenly popped up with no explanation from my teacher... We use GoGuardian to monitor, and don't use really anything from GSuite except Docs, Slides, Forms, and Meet. And then I started doing some research and it records how long you've been on the website?? If my teachers are going to use this I'm probably going to get in trouble because everything says like "Should take 30 mins to do" and its super easy, done in 15 mins. And its very creepy that it has access to EVERY SITE... like if I'm at home on my spring break (like I am now) and want to, say I don't know, go on the fandom wiki and look at Persona 5 wiki pages, I don't want my teachers and the principal to know constantly what I am doing, even at home. Plus chromebooks don't really need Gopher Buddy's update warnings because every time you log in it has multiple pop ups for updates. And I think my internet provider can use IP addresses to find my location, so now my school always knows where I am. I can see why the school got this, but it just doesn't seem that safe of an extension. It works like its supposed to, but... a little creepy. GoGuardian is the farthest extent of tracking as I would want to go, and this just took it a little bit too far.

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 its a 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 a online revaluation we could defeat this Communist spyware extension. Fight on Gamers. According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready! Coming! Hang on a second. Hello? Barry? Adam? Can you believe this is happening? I can't. I'll pick you up. Looking sharp. Use the stairs, Your father paid good money for those. Sorry. I'm excited. Here's the graduate. We're very proud of you, son. A perfect report card, all B's. Very proud. Ma! I got a thing going here. You got lint on your fuzz. Ow! That's me! Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000. Bye! Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house! Hey, Adam. Hey, Barry. Is that fuzz gel? A little. Special day, graduation. Never thought I'd make it. Three days grade school, three days high school. Those were awkward. Three days college. I'm glad I took a day and hitchhiked around The Hive. You did come back different. Hi, Barry. Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. Hear about Frankie? Yeah. You going to the funeral? No, I'm not going. Everybody knows, sting someone, you die. Don't waste it on a squirrel. Such a hothead. I guess he could have just gotten out of the way. I love this incorporating an amusement park into our day. That's why we don't need vacations. Boy, quite a bit of pomp under the circumstances. Well, Adam, today we are men. We are! Bee-men. Amen! Hallelujah! Students, faculty, distinguished bees, please welcome Dean Buzzwell.
