WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Monday called on education technology provider Chegg (NYSE:) Inc to bolster its data security, citing lax security practices that regulators said exposed the personal data of millions of customers.
The proposed FTC order would also require the company to limit the data it can collect and offer users access to data and multifactor authentication, the commission said in a statement.
