Regular Security Update will be applied to Google Drive

On September 13, 2021, Drive will apply a security update to make file sharing more secure. This update will change the links used for some files and may lead to new file access requests. Access to these files will not change for people who have already viewed them.

What I need to do?

You can choose to remove this security update in Drive, but removing the update is not recommended and should only be considered for files that are publicly released.

After the update is applied, you can prevent further access requests by distributing the updated link to your files. Google already sent email to their clients about this matter. You may check it now.


About Google Security Update:

Google is known for its strong focus on security and regularly releases security updates for its products and services. These updates are intended to address vulnerabilities and protect users from potential security threats.


Google’s security updates cover a wide range of products, including the Android operating system, Chrome web browser, and Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) applications. The updates can include bug fixes, patches, and new security features.


Regular Schedule:

Google typically releases security updates on a regular schedule, such as monthly or quarterly. However, in cases where there is a critical vulnerability that needs to be addressed immediately, Google may release an out-of-band security update.


To ensure that your devices and accounts are secure, it is important to keep them up-to-date with the latest security updates and patches. You can check for available updates on your device’s settings or through the Google Security Blog, which provides regular updates on security issues and Google’s response to them. It is also important to take other security measures such as using strong and unique passwords, enabling two-factor authentication, and avoiding suspicious links and attachments.
