I was recently "invited" to win a free phone on my Google calendar. At first I was concerned that my account was compromised, but i think anyone can send a calendar invite.

Is it safe for me to ignore these invites (and obviously never follow any links), or is there some action I need to take to secure my account?


it is not dangerous unless you open a link, or open any kind of attachments.
of course vulnerability in Google calendar is another issue. (like zero-day exploits that are out of your hands).
in general enable two step security on your account, install update asap, and you are ok.
