The gauge dependence of the second order induced gravitational waves are widely recognized issue since GWs should be physical observable. While there have been several studies about the gauge dependence, I will talk about a new idea to solve the issue. I revisited the definition of nonlinear tensor modes and their gauge transformation from a covariant perspective and find a way to properly define the gauge invariant energy density of the induced GWs.
