The American search engine “Google” is preparing to add a new feature to its service “Drive” during the next two weeks, which is to ban (block) other accounts from sharing files with it.
The feature also prevents those rejected accounts from accessing any files shared with them in the past, and deletes any of their previous files from the drive.

Google said about the new feature in statement for her “Google Drive’s sharing capabilities increase productivity and collaboration, but bad actors can abuse tools meant to facilitate useful sharing, which is why we are creating a way to block other users.”
She indicated that blocking an account in “Google Drive” will also prevent those accounts from interacting with the person who imposed the ban through other “Google” services, such as “Hangouts” and “Chat”.
According to Google’s support page, the option to block a user will pop up if you right-click on a file they have shared with you in Google Drive.
It also pointed out that it will provide the option to cancel the ban at a later time.
