Your Boss Can Read All Of Your G Suite Email Drafts, Former Google’s Employee Reveals

If your company is using Google’s G Suite, it is highly likely that your bosses and Google know everything you have done on these devices

If your company is using Google’s G Suite, including Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Calendar, it is highly likely that your bosses know everything you have done on these devices.

G-Suite-Google
Google has several ways to access the content of your G Suite account

This has been the case for so many years yet not many people notice it, until recently when Martin Shelton, a former employee of Google, posted a long blog post about all the ways Google can have access to your G Suite account’s content. He is now working as a principal researcher for the Freedom of the Press Foundation. He also noted that if someday Google is compelled to hand over your personal data to the government, it will do so.

Shelton also pointed out that your employers have access to everything you do on the G Suite account, depending on the version your company is using. Your bosses may know as much as whether you open a file on Google Drive. He shared that documents in G Suit are not protected by end-to-end encryption, so Google had all it needed to read the content if it wanted.

Google is not actually discreet about this. It said that the administrators needed to have access to the data you have in the G Suit accounts, which also includes the emails.

Some people may have known this already. All of the emails you send by the company’s account should be work-related anyway. So it is not so weird when your employers or IT head can read them. However, it might take several users by surprise that administrators can read their draft email live, something Shelton said they could do.

So be careful with what you write, even if you do not intend to send it. Your bosses may know about the frustrating emails you wanted to send them but then had a change of heart.

There is always someone watching these days.
