SU Tips and Tricks
Be Cautious of a Google Drive Phishing Scam
A phishing email has been making its rounds on the web in an attempt to
steal your Google username and password. It all starts with an email
that says a file has been shared with you on Google Drive. When you
click the link to go to the document, it takes you to a page to enter
your username and password. This is not Google Drive, but rather a well
done fake site that will collect your username and password. Please be
careful what you open and where you enter your password. Click the
link for more information.
Drive updated last week to include a whole new section of applications
that you can add to your Google Sheets and Google Documents. Things like
track changes, label and mail merges and more! Want the full rundown?

update to one of my favorite Chrome Extensions is pretty awesome! You
have always been able to take a screenshot, mark it up and then share it
out via Google Drive. Now, you can also do a screen recording &
share immediately via Google Drive OR upload to YouTube! This is a
great tool! Want to know more? Click the link!
