Default Google drive still accessible even AFTER changing google account password?

Greetings,

I had recently left my phone in a cab, but thankfully the taxi driver is an honest man.

I changed my password for google account via a computer because I wanted to prevent anyone from accessing my personal email/info. However, what really is disturbing is that even after changing my google account password, launching Google Drive could still load and access some files in my google docs. This is even without me entering my new updated password in my phone at Google sign in.

Unless I have missed some security setting, how is Google Drive still able to access my google docs even after I have changed my password remotely, and have NOT yet updated the new password info for Google sign-in on my phone?

For now, I am just going to uninstall google drive as this all seems quite insecure.

Appreciate any advice.

Default Discovered the same thing

Hi,

I discovered the same thing as you. After changing the gmail account password I can still access the google drive with a device using the old password.

And it seems as nobody are interested in the problem, and I think this is a big security risk.

Are anyone using google drive at all?
