Google services apparently suffered from a widespread issue with Gmail filters. Consequently, Gmail users around the world complained about spam messages.
They spoke about their problem on Twitter and other social media sites. They complained that they are receiving numerous spam messages.
Google said that the issue has now resolved.
According to the international news source, Google had said that the spam flaw was a part of a bigger issue that caused Gmail emails to be delayed. The aftermath of this was “some messages were delayed enough that they resulted in delivery without all spam checks completing”.
The issue was first reported Android Police. Google said, “during this time, scans to filter malware and the most egregious spam and harmful content remained fully operational”.
One Gmail user posted, “Why did the Gmail spam filters break?!” Another one commented, “Did Gmail’s spam filter and category function just completely shut down for anyone else? Everything’s now going straight to the primary inbox,”
Another user posted: “It is a strangely comforting thing that I can just search for ï¿½gmail’ and immediately Twitter provides me with evidence that yes, others are getting weirdly hit with spam right now”.
