This Google Drive update should make it so much easier to keep your shared files safe

Google announced it would make it easier for users to set expiration dates when sharing files on its cloud storage platform Drive, which uses basic automation to avoid users having to go back to the share menu and revoke access.

Previously, adding expiration dates to shared files for viewers and commenters was done after the file or folder was first shared, by going back to the menu and adjusting the permissions. With the introduction of this update, certain Google Drive users can now set an expiration date at the time of sharing.

In addition, Google has also added the ability to manage the editor access period, which was previously unavailable.
