The Google Calendar service, or simply Google Calendar, is one of the most practical free tools in American technology. However, until recently, it was easily “hostage” to spam due to invitations from random contacts that are not related to the user.
Fortunately, technology has now paid more attention to this fact, in order to eliminate the occurrence of these invitations that automatically created calendar events. Something that will eventually be resolved, or at least mitigated.
It’s easier to block SPAM in Google Calendar
As reported by the technology itself, the invitations received from a person you have never interacted with are not automatically added to our calendar. This is unless they indicate that they know that person.
On the other hand, we can still respond to invitations we send you by email and change this behavior at any time. Definitions > General > event definitions.
Also according to Google, these changes were applied to prevent different types of calendar spam. As such, we can prevent abusive apps from accessing the calendar and choose which events are displayed.
