Users already logged into the email by the browser are not affected by the problem. Access to Gmail via Android and iPhone (iOS) apps is also stable. The 404 error reaches new logins on the service by desktop browsers, and also prevents you from entering the Google account from the search engine’s homepage. The flaw was resolved by the company at 10:39 am: «We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for the patience and support of the users,» he said in a statement.
