New notifications when content on Google Drive violates Google's policies

Quick Summary 

When a Google Drive file is determined to violate Google's Terms of Service or program policies, the file may be restricted. Once it's restricted, you may see a flag next to the filename, you won't be able to share it and your file will no longer be publicly accessible, even to those with the link.

The owner of the item in Google Drive will now receive an email notifying them of the action taken and telling them how to request a limited review if they think it was a mistake. For items in shared memory, the shared memory manager will receive a message

This will help ensure owners of items on Google Drive are fully informed about the status of their content, and help ensure that users are protected from abusive content.

Getting started

  • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
  • End users: If a user has a file that violates Drive policies, they'll receive an email with details and potential actions they can take to request a review.
