Spam Detection for Google Drive Will Be Fixed Very Soon

SHARE:



We all know that Google Drive is a powerful cloud service. It allows you to store files and create documents. Moreover, it even has a robust sharing system that helps you collaborate with friends and colleagues. However, the bad part is that it’s very easy to spam people with shared files and folders. In addition to that, there’s no way to completely remove them from your account. However, Google has announced that it is aware of the issue and the company is soon going to fix  Google Drive’s Spam Problem.

The Company Will Soon Fix Google Drive’s Spam Problem

The issue was first pointed out by AP alum Cameron Summerson on How-To Geek. The sad part is that you don’t have to accept shared content before it appears and removing it doesn’t actually remove it. It means that whenever someone sends you spam, it just appears in your Drive directory under the “Shared with you” section and in the quick access list. Furthermore, if you have view-only access to the content, you can not delete it. The “Remove” option in Google Drive only hides it from the shared folder making it impossible to remove spam content.
Google has recently clarified that it’s looking at ways to fix Drive’s spam problem. The company stated that:
“For the vast majority of Drive users, the default sharing permissions work as intended. Unfortunately, this was not the case for the user and we sincerely apologize for her experience. In light of this issue, we are evaluating changes to our spam, abuse, and blocking features that will prevent this kind of activity from taking place on Drive in the future. In the interim, users who are experiencing such issues can remove themselves from the folder, and the folder will not reappear in either “My Drive” or “Shared with Me” unless they revisit it.”
Hopefully, this fix will roll out soon to all users who are facing this problem.
