150,000 Gmail Accounts Gone

As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, More than 150,000 Gmail accounts disappeared as a result of a bug. All of the information contained in the accounts was also deleted. Imagine losing years of conversations and contacts. The initial estimate was 0.29% of all Gmail accounts, but that estimate was revised and said to be sitting more around 0.08% by the end of the day. According to a number of different reports, the correspondence within these accounts was also deleted throughout the past weekend. Users were unable to log in to their accounts. Once the accounts had been restored, the information within the accounts was mysteriously missing.

Essentially, the accounts were completely reset and all that was left was the user-name and login for the accounts. Google has maintained that they believe they will be able to restore all of the data that was lost. until that time, users will not be able to access their GMail accounts because of the issue.

Google quickly released a statement ensuring users that they were hard at work on the issue and stated that they would be working hard to restore full data access for the affected accounts. This is the first time that users have seen a mass deleting of their accounts and it is not clear what might have caused the issue. All Google has said so far was that it was some kind of bug, which seems to be in line with other reports that were released shortly following the deletion of the accounts.

Users have been asked to not contact support and instead to stay updated with the progress through press releases that google issues. All of the deleted accounts are on the same page and none will be restored publicly before others. Although it is a very large hiccup on Google’s part, it sounds as if everything will be restored.
