Google Calendar Spam, WTF??

Recently, if you accessed your google calendar, and it was filled with spammy adverts, you are not alone! Our Google calendars are being tricked by spammers to inject these events without you knowing or doing anything. Google has let everyone know they are trying to resolve the issue.

While we wait for Google to fix the bug, if your calendar is filled with repeating spam events, you can remove them on your own. To disable the “automatically add invite” function:

  • Open your Google Calendar on your computer
  • Open “Settings”
  • On the left, click “Event settings”
  • Look for the “Automatically add invitations” option. Change this to “No, only show invitations to which I have responded”
