Downloading from Google Drive

So I’ve noticed a lot of editors post their Edits on google drive. my question is how do we download the files anonymously as I can’t get GD to work with my VPN? I AM in incognito though however much that helps.

Most browsers will let you open an “incognito” or “in private” browser. In chrome, right click the link, “open in incognito window” the link will open and it won’t be associated with your gmail. Click download and it will download to your hard drive.

Ok cool. I was just overly cautious because last time I dl’d a video from Google drive I got a cease and desist from Disney. But I don’t think I was incognito.
Thank you very much.

Were you perhaps downloading other things around the same time? Otherwise, this doesn’t make sense. Your traffic to Google Drive is encrypted by TLS, so at most an outsider could see that you are transferring encrypted data from google.com (no URL past that, as it’s encrypted). And I don’t think Google shares its private traffic data with other companies.

Thanks that’s a little reassuring. I was probably torrenting, usually I am.
