Change of password

Hi guys.

If I change my password to my Google drive, do I then need to reconfigure rclone config and reauthorize the gdrive again via the link rclone is showing when you configure it headless?

Thanks :slight_smile:

You shouldn't need to. No.

So if I have a drive shared with another person and I change my gdrive login, it wont have any effect? :confused:


When you authorize, you get an oAuth key and that is how you authenticate from that point forward.

The user name and password is only used to get the key.

You can revoke the auth though if that is what you're trying to do.

Thanks for the replies :slight_smile:

How do I revoke if I need to?

Located it at Googledrive 3rd party :slight_smile:
