I did a thing!

Battling Google Calendar Spam

IF THERE’S ONE THING I HATE, IT’S SPAM! There’s no such thing as a good kind of spam, unless it’s made by Hormel. The latest thing I’ve fallen victim to has been the random and annoying Google Calendar events about making money. I mean, COME ON, my schedule is clearly busy enough without all this crap!

Okay. Here’s a basic step-by-step of what you can do.

  1. Open your Google Calendar and navigate to your settings.
  2. Scroll down to the setting Show events you have declined.
  3. Say “NO” to that one, as well as Automatically add invitations to my calendar.
  4. Set both of those to “NO”, and save. Yes, I know I repeated myself.

This may have the added inconvenience of you never seeing the invitations you had so callously said “NO” to, but at least your calendar will no longer be filled with spam events.

You’re welcome. Have a great night.
