I would like to know this as well. Keep getting spam shared on an account I don't use much, but keep getting notifications. Not fun when my 9 yo son is on my phone and a notification pops up that someone shared "eat my pussy baby". Google needs to address this.

Same problem here. I'd like to be able to prevent people I don't know from being able to share with me at all. I don't want to touch these files, either, as I suspect they're malicious. Is there no way to disable sharing completely?

Glad/Upset to see im not the only one having this issue. Its not that hard to have a disallow all option with a white list.

i agree. this is a problem that has me in the verge of just withdrawing from all google things. i feel like anyone in the world that just has my email address can put whatever they want on my drive, and all of my devices will get a notification to view some extremely lewd content. Please google fix this

I find it unbelievable that there is no setting to stop OTHERS from sharing files with me on my Google Drive. This story needs to go viral. Will contact CNN if Google does not resolve this immediately. 

I'm getting sex-related solicitations and other spam, along with the notifications for them on my phone. 

THIS MUST STOP, OR I WILL MAKE THIS MAJOR SECURITY ISSUE A TOPIC ON CNN AND FACEBOOK.

Same here! Why hasn't Google addressed this yet? I continuously have to report and delete the files manually. Also, has anyone had issues deleting them where it says "Write access to the document denied" and it won't let you remove the file?

Please @google handle this issue. I am receiving naked pictures of people looking to solicit sex, and these are people I have no connection with. This just started a few days ago, and ive had this account for years. Why is this happening now and why is there no option to prevent unknown from sharing???!!!

I'm receiving unwanted solicitations, spam, that contains nudity and sexually explicit content, it violates your user agreement, but there's no built in way for me to block it or even delete it. I need this deleted off of my computer, now
