    Do you mean delete, or prevent?

    Are they actual Drive notifications that you just don't want and are calling them spam because you don't want them or are they supposed to be "from" Drive and are actually fake?

    What type of notification is it? One that appears in your notification bar, an email, an SMS or pop-up? Knowing this will both help us know how to delete them and help with prevention.

    I'm thinking exactly the same as VidJunky -- the real Google Drive wouldn't spam you.

    I have two devices: Samsung Galaxy A21s phone and Samsung Galaxy TabA tablet.
    Those notifications appear in my notifications bar on Google Drive App. and have nothing to do with Google Drive and they are totally unwanted, just real junk or spam.
    I only uploaded files to drive.
    If it is possible I want to prevent them. If not-to delete them.
    Anyway, I have about 15 those notifications, and I need to delete them.

    notifications bar on Google Drive App.
    Can you post a screenshot? The notification bar is a system function, not within an app...

    If you're unable to post a screenshot, can you at least tell us what those notifications say?

    I’m not sure that you can easily prevent them. I think you have to report them to Google.

    I blocked notifications on Google Drive settings.
    I also blocked some notifications on Google Application. Now I still have those notifications on Google Drive, but they are empty. I hope they will gradually disappear. If not, I will keep in touch with you.
    Thank you.

    You still haven't given more information like what the notification says or screen shot ?

    I apologize, I made a mistake. Those notifications appeared not in notifications bar but in notifications section on Google Drive app. Now when I blocked notifications in "notifications settings", the notifications section disappeared, but I still see the headlines in "recent" section. The pages themselves are blank now, only headlines. Very important: they all are in the Russian language and are a typical spam. Now, after I blocked them I hope they would disappear in time.
    Thank you.
