Issues with many older Android smartphones: Access to Google services severely restricted

Android users who are still using version 2.3.7 will have to be prepared for restrictions in the future. As Google Announces, if this or an older Android version is installed on the device, you will not be able to log in to Google services from September. Internet giants justify this as a security measure.

This means that it will no longer be possible to sign in with a Google Account on this device. It also shows other cases that cause problems. You will not be able to log in again after resetting the password. Registration becomes impossible even after factory reset. In addition, you will no longer be able to create an account on such a device.

Android: Google recommends updating to a higher version

In practice, this remedy is likely to affect only a small number of users. Android 2.3.7 was released almost ten years ago in September 2011. Most Android users now have new devices anyway.

Google recommends everyone who is actually still using the older version, if it’s possible on the device, to update to Android 3.0 or higher as soon as possible. Alternatively, it will also be possible to access Google services via the device’s web browser in the future under 2.3.
