Data Loss Prevention for Drive helps protect sensitive data when users upload files to external Google Forms


We introduced a test program in April that enables users to answer to inquiries on external forms that request users to submit files while also assisting in preventing the leakage of private and sensitive data.

The Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Drive policies now in effect for your domain will be applied to any files that users upload to Google Forms using this functionality, which is now broadly accessible. This will be done without the need to add any new rules or modify any already existing ones.


- Files submitted to file upload questions in Google Forms outside of your domain will be subject to the DLP for Drive rules set up for your domain.
- In the Admin panel, go to Security > Data protection and add DLP rules at the domain, OU, or group level if you are not using DLP for Drive. You can take steps to block, warn, or audit.

End Users

- End users may still submit forms as normal, but they can now submit forms from domains outside of their own, including forms that ask users to upload files.
- Users may get notifications or be prevented from completing forms if they do not comply with DLP for Drive policies for their domain.
