has removed the phrase “Don’t be evil” from its Code of Conduct; this comes as at least 4,000 employees have expressed outrage over the company’s decision to work with the #Pentagon
and amid a leaked video called the “#SelfishLedger
” exposing internal Google dialogue to create a #dystopia
run by the big social giant.
Google has removed multiple instances of its infamous “Don’t be evil” motto from its Code of Conduct, Gizmodo reported.
’s April 21st, 2018 archive shows the three-word phrase still present in the opening paragrahps of an earlier Code of Conduct:
Don’t be evil. Googlers generally apply those words to how we serve our users. But “Don’t be evil” is much more than that. Yes, it’s about providing our users unbiased access to information, focusing on their needs and giving them the best products and services that we can. But it’s also about doing the right thing more generally – following the law, acting honorably, and treating co-workers with courtesy and respect.
The Google Code of Conduct is one of the ways we put “Don’t be evil” into practice. It’s built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work at Google will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct. We set the bar that high for practical as well as aspirational reasons: Our commitment to the highest standards helps us hire great people, build great products, and attract loyal users. Trust and mutual respect among employees and users are the foundation of our success, and they are something we need to earn every day.
However, in May you will now notice the “Don’t be evil” phrases aren’t present in an entry on May 4th, 2018 Wayback archive of the Code of Conduct, which was last updated on April 5th, 2018.
