The Cloud changes everything. I work with a lot of different clients. One of the ways we communicate is by sharing information from Google Drive.
The problem is that, as time goes by, you forget who you might have given access to. That could become a problem when you gave access to someone who no longer works for that client, or that job has been completed. So it’s a good idea to review each of your files and see who you might be sharing that with – right? Wait. What’s that you say?
“Mike, that sounds great but who has time to pull up each file and check?“
So glad you asked that. WhoHasAccess.com can help you!
With just a few clicks, you allow the app access to your Google Drive and in a few minutes it will scan every file, every folder.
You’ll be able to see the Who and the What for every file. If you can’t remember the Why – it’s easy to revoke the permission. BAM!
Did that save you a bunch of time? You are welcome! I’d would love it if you helped by sponsoring me in my local Animal Rescue Fundraiser <= Check it out!
BONUS: You just gave access of your entire Google Drive to someone. (It’s ok they are trusted) Did you read the items you accepted before clicking the ok button? Will they have access two years from now? How do you remove them? I know we usually blow past the TOS, and Privacy Statements these days but these might be things to think about before the click.
Luckily for you – WhoHasAccess does this:
If they didn’t, you would want to know where to remove that permission – right? They also reportedly don’t access the files themselves (data within).
They are currently working on the “Revoke All Access” button so you can do everything from the site.
NEXT TIME: We’ll talk about the same with other cloud services (like DropBox)
