Google Colab Permissions

Hi All,

I have started studying the fast ai course for a couple of weeks and it has been a blast learning it. I have been using google colab for the course and I was wondering how safe it was to run permissions with your personal account when mounting the data to your google drive (which i unfortunately have done so a few times). I know this site and course is legitimate but I am a bit paranoid when it comes to someone having access to my data. As a cautionary procedure, does google drive let me know who has accessed or downloaded my data, or worst case scenario does the code in the fastai notebooks allow people to access it without my knowledge?


Hi, I’m not sure how safe it is to allow permission, but I know the code works without giving permission. You can just comment out the fastbook.setup_book() part.

What do you mean by running permissions? who asks you for permission and to do what?
