File in Google Drive Flagged as Inappropriate


U-M Google


I am trying to share a file in Google Drive, but Google has indicated the file has been flagged as inappropriate. What do I do?


If a document you own is flagged as inappropriate by Google, you will need to request a review. To do so:

  1. Click the "Share" button on the top right of the screen when looking at the document
  2. Click "Request Review"

This will prompt Google to manually check the document and confirm it is okay to share. Unfortunately, ITS is unable to reverse the state of the document; however, if it has been over 48 hours since you've requested a review and you still cannot share the document, please contact ITS and a ticket to Google can be opened on your behalf.
