Coming Changes to Google Drive Shared File Links

submitted by

In the coming month Google is changing the links for some shared files in Google Drive. This change increases the security of the shared file links. Because the link is changing, if you have posted the link to an affected shared file somewhere (like on a department website) you’ll need to change the link so it can still be accessed.

Google will notify you if any of your files are affected. This notification may not arrive immediately but over the next few weeks.
