If you are still running an older Android Gingerbread, Google will stop you from signing into the device from the 27th of September.
If your device is still running Android 2.3.7, which is the final version Gingerbread, or any older version, it’s going to stop working.
Google has said, “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 into 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.”
It might be surprising how few people are running this version of Android, as it was released nearly ten years ago.
If you do have an older Android handset or tablet if that’s possible then you will likely be able to continue using some of the Android services.
If you’re logged into your devices browser then you still have access to a few of the features, however much like Google we would recommend you update now.
