On July 26, 2021, Google will send direct email notifications to WMU Google users who own or manage files impacted by a security update that will change links (URLs) for files shared in 2017 and prior. The email will provide instructions on steps to take and will include a link to view a list of impacted files you own or manage in Google Drive (My Drive/Shared Drive). Individuals may be impacted when trying to view these files on websites (public or internal) or posted elsewhere if the instructions are not followed. You will not receive an email if you are not impacted.
