Don’t click on Google Docs links arriving via email from one of your known contacts saying they’ve shared a doc with you. It’s highly likely to be a phishing attack.
If you click on the link it takes you to a very convincing page that asks for permission to “allow” access to manage ie: read, send and delete emails along with access to all your contacts without asking for your Gmail password.
**The genuine Google Docs app does not require permission to access your Gmail account.**
If you have (or suspect you may have) clicked on a phishing link and granted access, you can still remove permissions for any app including the fraudulent “Google Docs” app from your Google account.
Step by Step instruction on how to remove allowed apps from your Google account:
- Go to your Gmail accounts permissions settings at https://myaccount.google.com and Sign-in
- Go to Security and Connected Apps
- Search for “Google Docs” from the list of connected apps and Remove it
