Reduce Data Privacy & Security Overhead
School Passport reduces exposure to PII mitigating risk and costs.
Comply with Data Privacy Regulations
Without Incurring Added Costs
PII Shield anonymizes data before it reaches your platform while still allowing for
personalization, authentication and communication with end users.
Personal Identifiable Information Is Used In Many Applications
School Passport’s PII shield offers all the benefits of using PII data while mitigating most of the cost and risk.
PII data is used to
Personalize user experiences
Saying “Hi Jane Doe” in your applicaiton means recieving PII.
Allow users to log in
Many applications use email addresses for user logins.
Create users accounts
Storing first name, last name, email means you’re storing PII.
Communicate with users
Applications use emails and phone number to engage users.
Accessing PII has costs too
It takes an army of lawyers to track all the privacy legislation.
Compling with SOC2 or ISO 27001 isn’t easy.
Penetration testing and vulnerability assessments are costly.
All the lawyers, standards and audits add up quickly.
PII Shield Reduces Overhead Costs, While Meeting Needs
PII Shield anonymizes personal identifiable information before it reaches your platform while still allowing for personalization,
authentication and communication with end-users.
You can still achieve your goals while using PII Shield
Accounts For Each User
School Passport provides anonymized data, removing PII before your application or staff ever get access. It leaves just enough to create accounts and link them together.
Manage Logins with SSO
Single sign-on is our bread and butter, you don’t need PII to allow access to your application. Just enable SSO with any of our open standards SAML, OAUTH or LTI.
We have EdTechs that receive no PII, we have EdTechs that just enable the first name. Enable as much or as little of the PII data that your risk profile allows.
Communicate with Users
We offer Communcaitons APIs in our platform. Simply share the message you need delivered to our APIs, we will get to to where it needs to go. No emails, or phone numbers required.
Why Our Vendors Love PII Shield
As a mid-sized EdTech company, our biggest challenge has always been accessing SIS data from our schools. On our own, we only had interfaces built with three SIS companies in our region. GG4L has been a game-changer by immediately providing access to over 40 SIS companies, allowing us to expand our services from the central US to compete nationally!

We are proud to be a Sponsor of this strategic initiative toward the improved safety of our schools and the lives of children. I am also glad to see GG4L emerging as the low-barrier distribution enablement platform for cloud-hosted EdTech solutions into schools by inviting socially responsible corporations to participate in large-scale sustainable impact initiatives in education.

The broad use of educational technology in our classrooms would not be possible without the help from School Passport. The GG4L dashboard allows us to focus on different application usage over differing periods of time to gauge level of usage by location.
