Google Drive

I've never used Google Drive, never even looked into it however I received a notification on my mobile phone that someone had left a file there for me. I was surprised because I've not shared it with anyone. I took a look at what was there without opening anything, and it appears that someone had saved some rude photos there. I just removed all without opening them.

How can this happen, has my email account been compromised? It's the only area I use and sign into Google about.

Any users of Google Drive who can advise please?

At the top right of the "front page" tap the Question Mark, then tap Help, then tap Contact Google Drive Support, and let them know about it. Also change your password to maybe a more powerful one that's more difficult to hack.

Thanks, done, and as I don't use Google Drive or any of the apps that appear to be configured to use it, I've disable all. So my phone can now receive & make calls, texts and email, and that's all.
