Old Android Devices Will Not Be Able to Access Google Accounts


Google Announced that old Android devices that are running Android 2.3.7 or older will not be able to sign in to Google Accounts after September 27th. So, if you are using an Android device with version 2.3.7 (the final version of Gingerbread) or older, it is time to change your device or update the Android version, if your device can do so.   

The tech giant announced this on their support platform that, “As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our users safe, Google will no longer allow sign-in on Android devices that run Android 2.3.7 or lower starting September 27, 2021. If you sign in to your device after September 27, you may get username or password errors when you try to use Google products and services like Gmail, YouTube, and Maps.”  

The possible errors that users might face are:

1. Perform a factory reset of your device and try to sign in.  

2. Change your password either on the device or on a different device, which then signs you out everywhere else. When you try to sign in again, you will receive an error message.  

3. Remove your account from your device and re-add it.  

4. Create an account on the device.  


If you cannot update your device, you can still sign in to your account and have an access to limited services using the device’s web browser.
