Google Docs customers have been hit with a nasty shock in the present day as they attempt to edit paperwork—they’re getting locked out of their drafts and receiving a message warning them that their paperwork violate Google’s phrases of service.
The abuse policy for Docs and different Google Drive providers forbids customers from publishing a spread of content material, from malware to hate speech to copyrighted materials. However a lot of the customers who’ve encountered the issue up to now appear to be engaged on fairly innocuous content material that wouldn’t violate Google’s insurance policies, which signifies that that is most likely a glitch.
DownDetector is at the moment reporting Google Drive problems within the US and Europe. Gizmodo contacted Google to ask in regards to the outage and we’ll replace you once we hear again, however it sounds just like the Drive crew isn’t positive what’s happening but. “The crew has been made conscious and is investigating. Admire your persistence,” Google Drive’s official account tweeted.
