Google Resource Key Update

On September 13, 2021, Google will be applying ‘resource keys’ to existing shared files as a security measure for Google Drive data.  This security add-on will change the behavior of Drive data only when links are requested by NEW viewers — anyone who already has access to an existing shared file won’t need to do anything. This ‘resource key’ will be embedded in the new shared link that the sender provides. A New viewer who receives a link with this embedded key will be able to access the shared document via the link. We appreciate your bringing us your concern over this security change and hope you will not hesitate to contact us with any other questions.
