Google has a long-standing reputation for not providing good support u2014 especially if you’re a small, independent studio or team. It is frustrating. What is the latest horror story about a private Google Takeout backup? Why’s this customer’s account being deleted from google? There is a full disclosure by the Gmail user that they claim their account was stolen without any explanation, including emails, photos, Google Pay balance and any other data they might have collected if they didn’t know the full contents were u2014 e.g. facebook messages, phone calls u2014 unceremoniously snatched away.
What happened to the NTC and why does it still exist?
It’s ridiculous to have detail in so many things, and it’s like a movie without the thrills. Take this with a grain of salt, since we cannot be sure we have the full story when it’s on.
Last night, the email on ios grew out of a Google account for the last 20 years, and now the account is closed. (to my dismay) Google blocked my account for this year. but given the new account and its current state, the email was deleted. If they were asleep, a representative from the customer’s email address could not be reached. No additional information regarding the reason for their account’s suspension was provided. I still have my Google account, so the appeal was made, but the timeline is clear.
For some of us, a mild inconvenience, but Google’s services are both ubiquitous and well known. If you locked out of your Google account and the only company service you use is Gmail, you might lose access to your emails, but Chris was much more deeply invested, using Google Fi for phone service, Google Fiber for internet access, Google Pay to settle debts, Google Drive for school and work, and Google Photos for photo backups. From his Google Pay phone he could no longer pay his energy bills and left with no way to pay for his phone bills and documents. I, on the other hand, can’t answer in my email account when locked out because of POP. And even that basic loss of email access is a huge problem right now u2014 Chris, like many of us during the epidemic, is unemployed, and can’t answer any response to job applications while locked out of the account. I’m having to fix that.
On top of that, email is often used for two-factor authentication, including some financial services and healthcare. This loss of email account access can also mean third-party services entirely unrelated to Google may be affected, and Chris may temporarily lose access to both doctor and bank thanks to Google’s actions.
What is the next step in digital enchantment, instead of identity theft?
What do you think is the biggest internet service nightmare we could suffer is identity theft or hacking (and we’ve heard some real digital horror stories there, too), but this simple one-sided action by Google can be massively destructive to our lives, equating to terms-of-service-sanctioned destruction of our digital property if we don’t make regular backups? Is it very common that this is coming into popularity?
How did Andrew Spinks get locked out of his Google account?
If you follow YouTube Original videos on live stream, or if you haven’t seen a feed here before, then Google suspends your account without paying you. In this instance, you can still see a live stream, like the one below. While people were warned that Google’s spambot detection was likely to be an issue if they were too enthusiastic in their participation, some did not take the warning close enough to heart, and the YouTuber behind the broadcast even had to step in to help his viewers seek a solution.
All this further ignores the many smaller account.
How does Chris Story explain his suspension? In certain cases, Google suspends an account to help the account holder themselves u2014 if, for instance, it’s been hacked, that can protect their data. How did you find a YouTube video that saved your videos to backup with Google Backup and Sync?
How will Chris meet with people on Twitter if we have any further updates on the coming posts. The gentleman claims that he is unable to get ahold of a “real person” to explain what happened, and customer support reps they have spoken to point to just Google. What is Googles account suspension practice in general and why it isn’t investigating? Right now, the Man says to have “resigned myself that the account is likely gone forever. How we change the system of ” Taking into consideration how we are going to use the system for better execution”?
Chris has raised a big enough stink over on Reddit and Twitter to gather attention so Google may yet address their individual case with greater transparency, but not everyone is so lucky. In the meantime, I know I’ll be backing up my own Google account, and I recommend you do the same.
