The unofficial motto of Google for a long time has been this simple phrase: “Don’t be evil”. But that’s over, according to the code of conduct that Google provides to its employees. Archives on the Wayback Machine show that the phrase was removed at the end of April or early May.But that’s over, according to the code of conduct that Google provides to its employees.

“Don’t be evil” has been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct since 2000. When Google was reorganized under a new parent company, Alphabet, in 2015, it assumed a slightly different version of the original slogan: “Do the right thing”. However, Google kept its original motto “Don’t be evil” until a few weeks ago.

Despite this significant change, Google’s code of conduct states that it has not been updated since April 5, 2018.

The updated version of the Google code of conduct continues to maintain a reference to the company’s unofficial motto. The last sentence of the document is still: “And remember … don’t be evil, and if you see something that you think is not right, say something!”
