Who Can See My Google Calendar?

The visibility of your Google Calendar is primarily dictated by the privacy settings you choose. Only you, specific individuals you've shared it with, or potentially anyone if set to public, can view your calendar events and details.

Here are the sharing and visibility settings in Google Calendar:

Private Setting: By default, your Google Calendar is set to private. This setting means that only you can view the events and details unless you choose to share them with others.

Shared with Specific People: You can share your calendar with selected individuals. Once shared, these individuals can view or edit the calendar based on the permissions you grant from viewing only to full editing rights.

Public Visibility: Making your calendar public allows anyone, even those without a Google account can view it. This setting is ideal for calendars displaying public events or schedules that need to be widely accessible.

Visibility Within an Organization: For Google Workspace users, there might be default settings enabling others in your organization to see your calendar. Typically, they can see whether you are free or busy but not the specific event details unless you set additional permissions.
