For those of you who are Android users of the Gingerbread version or Android 2.3.7 and lower versions, you will no longer access Google as of September 27. The Google services that are not accessed include Gmail, Youtube, and Maps. Google mentions ongoing efforts to keep users safe.
If the user is using Android 2.3.7 or earlier by September 27, the user will still be able to access some Google services via the device’s browser.
“If you sign in to your device after September 27, you may get username or password errors when trying to use Google products and services such as Gmail, YouTube, and Maps,”Google wrote.
Android 2.3.7 users will also encounter username or password errors when trying to log into Gmail or Youtube on those devices after September 27.
A similar error can occur if the user performs a factory reset on the device and tries to log in.
Also, an error may occur when the user tries to change the password on another device, which causes the user to log out elsewhere. When you try to sign in again, you will receive an error message.
The error will also be encountered when the user tries to remove the account from the device or add it back, as well as create an account on the device.
Regarding access to Google services, Android devices version 3.0 or Honeycomb are still compatible to gain access. Therefore, if your device can still update to Android version 3.0 or above, update it immediately to avoid errors due to not being able to access Google services.
