Google has announced that it will be scanning all personal Google Drive files of all it’s users. It will be looking for content that is ‘misleading content related to civic and democratic processes’.
This means it looking for messages and content about hot topics like COVID, the 2020 Election, Right-side news, political candidates, health regulations, vaccines, etc. Just like Facebook and Twitter who are completely banning people and their messages on anything against what these platforms want, Google is now doing it to your personal files.
Zoho is a free alternative if you do not feel safe on Google anymore. For a better understand as to what Google has publicly said about what type of content it is searching for, you can read the screenshot below. Just remember that they are the ultimate deciders of what is true and false in case you are worried that something may be questionable. Better to download or move any content that you are afraid to lose.
