For many years, using a very old version of an operating system could lead to security issues for the user. And to ensure that Google has taken the latest action.
Google will block logins on Android 2.3.7 (or earlier) starting September 27th
Mountain View technology began sending emails to users. It warns that devices running Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) or earlier will not be able to sign in to their Google Accounts by the end of September.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our users safe, Google will no longer allow users to sign in on Android 2.3.7 or lower until September 27, 2021. When you try to use Google products and services such as Gmail, YouTube and Maps you can sign in on your device after September 27. Or get password errors, ”writes Jack Pollack Official report To Google.
It is recommended that you “upgrade your device to the latest version of Android (3.0+)” to “maintain access to Google processors and services on that device”.
Still, if you can not upgrade your device to the new version, there is a way around the situation. You can try logging in to your Google Account from the browser of the device in question and access some services.
Either way, it’s good to remember that using an older version of Android can cause security issues. This version of Android was released on December 6, 2010. The latest stable version of the operating system is Android 11, which will be released in 2020.
