Android CentralUpdate: The error seems to have gone away on our devices here. Let's hope it stays that way.

The above picture may look familiar to many of you tonight if you've been trying to sync with Google servers. Many users are reporting seeing sporadic issues like the one above. You receive a notification about a sign in error with your Google Account, leading to the above screen, where following the "next" button seems to get you nowhere. The error is usually associated to an issue when you change your account password or your application-specific password for Google 2-step verification runs out, but we've ruled that out. This one's random kids.

We sure hope that Google is aware of the issue and is working to fix it. Let us know in the comments if the same is happening on your own devices.

Asmodicus says:

Yeah, I have been having this same problem for the last couple of hours.

still1 says:

seems like its a Jellybean Google Now issue. Others devices seems unaffected.

Uncle Louie says:

I'm on ICS and having having the same problem.
When I go into settings and Accounts and Sync, the error is with the Contacts Sync. There in a red sync symbol, and it says "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly."

still1 says:

Do u have google now installed on ICS?? It seems like a google now issues.
My ICS tablet have no issue at all. Only my nexus have issues.

garfnodie says:

I'm on JB and everything syncs just fine, actually went into the settings and did a manual sync and all worked, but I still get the error. A quick Google search brought me to a couple of places stating that it is "Now" that is the problem.

Open chrome app and clear cache seems to have solved my issue.

gaijin82 says:

I opened chrome and went to Google. That solved the problem on my nexus 7

jazzbassist1 says:

this worked for me too. good tip, thanks!

p.s. verizon gnex running codename: android

Google Account Dashboard -> Account -> Security, I deleted all (mobile) apps connections to my account, then deleted my Google Apps account on Android and reinstalled it. Now I can access everything again!

yes i havethe same problem in my device .please if someone know how to fix it help

cammykool says:

me too

yubeie says:

Haa..finally..I am not alone! I've been scratching my head for the past one hour trying all sorts of things...been all over XDA!

dotcom414 says:

Yep same issue on both a Galaxy Nexus and Nexus7

madcrabs says:

Me too. Gnex and Nexus 7. Thought maybe I was compromised despite using 2-step auth.

cammykool says:

N7 and one v

Nexus 7 only for me. GNex has no errors. Then again, it was dead for a few hours till I plugged it in and it's on now, not that that bears anything on it.

jbr05ki says:

Dang I thought I was the only one! Was about to factory restore.

Too late for me. I chicken littled and did a FR. Oh well. I'm off tomorrow so I'll be all right.

Oxirane says:

I'm glad to not be the only one. I was about to flash a new rom to see if that fixes it, too.

YuSH412 says:

yep. MKBHD mentioned that it might be just Google Now's issue, so only on jelly bean devices? Both my SGS2 and TF300T are running jelly bean.. and got them on both.

This is possible. I am having issues on my xoom and also on the razr with google now installed.

JDFlint says:

Yep having the issue as well, GN LTE

thank you for this. im sitting here my nexus 7 and my phone is just notifying me and im like WHATS GOING ON!?@

But i go on android central and bam! Relief!

rhclark923 says:

Same with me, thought my account was hacked til I checked online.

J T M says:

Having this same issue on and off with my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, both running AOKP JB build 1.

madeincanon says:

You need to get up on build 2

Hyp3rdr1v3 says:

Glad I'm not the only one seeing this, I think the problem is related to either Google Now (as I'm unable to refresh and get a "no connection" error) or the update to Maps

yval8957 says:

Yup, started around 7 pm here in Arizona. Keeps doing it on and off. Apparently it has something to do with Google Now. When I try to use GNow it won't connect at all, but other services work fine.

WallaceD says:

Happened on my Nexus S 4G right after I applied the 4.1 OTA. It didn't occur prior to the update.

(My Bionic isn't having the issue.)

Cory4ou says:

My first thought: S#!? I've been hacked! Haha

helipilotx says:

Yes, same here. I am using 2 step verification on a SGS3. But also my chrome extensions are affected.

hope they fix it soon.

bdbplatano says:

It's a Google Now issue. Everything else works tho (except Google Now)

Jordan2348 says:

Totally agree, especially given getting the issue on my Nexus 7 but not on bone stock GS3. Also when go into Now it just says "No Connection"

mleall says:

Same in my Galaxy Nexus with JB regards from Guatemala

DiamondRyce says:

It started like two hours ago for me. I thought it was my custom rom I have but apparently not. I wonder its for all android devices or all nexus devices

BrianTufo says:

Yeah this is annoying...hurry up and fix it Google!!

rezzoCL says:

Same here, Galaxy Nexus (GSM).

bejank says:

the notification is starting to piss me off :(

johnny99 says:

I got that error for a while this evening, but the phone seemed to work fine (including email, Google Play marketplace, etc.). Error has gone away now.

alphanu22 says:

i had it, its now fixed-

wdfalco says:

yes I do have to same problem here in Las Vegas Nevada

tdobynes says:

I thought I was having some crazy issue with my carrier signal then I tried wifi and had the same issue. I hope Google gets this fixed soon.

Jotokun says:

Just started happening for me. Glad to see its merely a google wide issue rather than someone getting into my account. Hopefully it'll be resolved by morning.

androinerd says:

A bunch of us on G+ thought it was related to 2 Step, but we found out through testing that it seems to be more related to Google Now.

If you check Google Now, now, it most likely last synced 2 hours ago.

mdoyal1 says:

Experienced it about an hour ago. It isn't doing it now though

Delph says:

Was hoping there would be information! Got the error our of the blue a couple hours ago, reflashed Gapps, still error. I can still update apps and receive new email, very strange. Running JB on my GSIII.

ottscay says:

I'm getting this on my ROMed Verizon GNex.

jmtanzo says:

Yes!!! Thank god I'm not the only one!!! Yeah, it's happening here in So Cal...

creco says:

Me too :(

eloy35 says:

Having the same issue on my stock Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean

Im seeing it on my SGS3 at the moment. I dont have google now on my SGS2 or my tablet so those 2 are free from that error atm.

rmkilc says:

Same issue here.

aliaboalsaud says:

My battery died and this was the first thing I saw after charging it and I was relieved that I'm not the only one facing this issue. What's weird about it is the fact that this looks like a random message and I'm actually signed in as everything works and able to access my account.. Play Store, Maps/Latitude, Drive, Contacts, YouTube & Google+.. Everything works perfectly but I keep getting this message every couple of minutes after dismissing it from my notifications.. Also, when I check the settings, everything seems fine with my account & it's syncing normally which.. All of the above made me think that this is a random message and not a legitimate failure to sign in

aliaboalsaud says:

Follow up, after reading a few comments, I noticed that Google Now is not working & it seems that it's the only GApp that's broken for me

sly says:

Misery loves company. Been getting this for a few hours. Nexus S 4G on JB.

Adirolfx says:

I've had this problem for a couple hours. Extremely annoying. It first started with Chrome, and and now has moved onto Google Now.

oktrav says:

Both my VZW Galaxy Nexus + Nexus 7, both running JB

Gcorvette987 says:

Same here, glad to hear im not the only one.

TX/Galaxy Nexus

ab304945 says:

Had the same prob on my gs3. It seems to be working now

vindi1505 says:

Apparently goggle now is not whats the problem? Should i wait?

bheid33 says:

I FACTORY RESTORED because I thought it was my phone, ugh that blows...

BlackMeddle says:

Happening here as well.

Nigandnog says:

First real issue ive had since purchasing this phone and as long as its just google now im okay with that...for now

leeyiksheng says:

Yes, but strangely, apart from the cards, my search still works and my 'a-few-seconds-ago-desktop-search-entry' still got synced and recognized on my GN. I'm in Malaysia. Is Google preparing a major upgrade of Google Now?

Nigandnog says:

Damn your right...Idk about a major update but that would be something they'd do after ios6 dropped today...who knows.

steraser says:

Same problem here. Nexus S 4G running stock JB.

mazzmoney95 says:

Yeah both N7 and evo running jellybean. It didnt seem to do anything bad so i'll just let it sort itself out

TheNexusMan says:

Been getting it for the past few hours myself, too.

zeusomar says:

I have the same issue in my Xoom tablet

Op120 says:

Couldn't figure out why it was happening on my N7 but not my gs3. The Google now makes more sense. Thank goodness for this community to put my mind at ease. ;-)

Evo4g says:

Glad I checked AC before going to bed...thought to that my account had been hacked.

dvdsteve says:

Same here, been about 5 hours now, same with the girlfriends, hope it's fixed soon, it seems I play around with Google now quite a bit lol

sean.geary says:

aybe you should take the opportunity to play with your girlfriend lol

WindRunner says:

Seems to only be Google Now - everything else syncs fine on my S3 with CM10. But I can tell you exactly when things went down because the baseball scores are stuck at given points.

skyphoto says:

Same issue... appears to be Google Now. When I try to open the Google Now cards, all I get is a "no connection" error.

I'm getting it too on my mytouch4g with jelly bean. Seems to have started right after I updated google maps.

elias0441 says:

I've had thus problem too since I updated the maps app....I'm starting to think the new sync feature in Google maps is the cause

GreyCelt says:

Ohhhhhhhhh, I didn't think of that! Yeah, started happening right after Maps update here as well!

GreyCelt says:

Yep, I've been having the same issue on my HTC Evo V 4G with ICS but I have the Google Now for ICS installed on it so I think it's a Google Now issue & not a JB issue.

jackatron says:

Same here. Samsung Galaxy Nexus JB. A-nnoying.

jian9007 says:

No issues on Sensation 4G with ICS, but my Nexus 7 JB has it.

cordodor says:

Same here for 3ish hrs. Vzw gs3 cm10 nightly

festmaster says:

When it happened on my Xoom. I assumed it would be fixed
by the morning. Looking at these comments, I am sure of it now.

eckirchn says:

Check your Google Now application. It looks to be the culprit.

raddog8765 says:

Been having the same problem on the Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean. However with my EVO 4G LTE with Ice Cream Sandwich I am not getting this issue.

Innersoul33 says:

Yea my Google now is down on my gnex running stock job. Same sign in error.

Small_law says:

Saw this on the Nexus 7, but not my Verizon GNex on 4.0.4. I

sean.geary says:

Been having this same issue on my GS3 also get a 'no Comnection' message in Google Now. I'm on a GSIII running stock JB

mo7utd says:

i have it on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus7 my htc one x no problem

jmoore414 says:

Glad to see it isn't just me..

Mr. Toad says:

Happened on my Verizon GS3. Looks like it is okay now.

rapproduca says:

Yessir. I'm having the same issue here. Google login is a no go.

dallasfever says:

Yes Sprint Epic Touch and Sprint Galaxy Nexus for me. I am surprised this is not at the top of Google's search results. Something just told me to come here and see if anything new was posted... Thanks android central now i don't feel alone and scared.

dkiller19 says:

I thought this happened before am I right?
I got the same problem here...

Mas21 says:

I believe it is Google Now that is causing the issue. The issue is present on my Verizon GNex with AOKP JB build 2 (4.1.1). It is not present on another Verizon GNex or a Verizon GS3, in my household, which both rely on Verizon for updates (still on ICS). All of the phones have the updated Google Maps on them as well.

Mas21 says:

Seems to be fixed.

tvking63 says:

It does seem to be a Google Now issue. My GNex is rooted stock ICS but I side loaded the Now apk and it's having the login issue along with my stock rooted JB Nexus 7.

Originalme8 says:

Glad it's not just me. This has been happening for a few hours now.

rapproduca says:

As soon as I posted this message my Google account is now logged in without doing a thing

rapproduca says:

Nevermind. I'm trippin smh

baykes says:

glad to sort of find an explanation for least i know its nothing wrong on my end

ybcthanerd says:

I have my SGH-T999 flashed to JB and im getting this issue also.

having this issue.

tarund says:

This issue is now resolved.

mp5wes says:

it was giving me errors for an hour or so but seems to be fixed about 5 minutes ago - Nexus S 4G (Non-Rooted, Stock, JB)

warblad13 says:

Have a Galaxy nexus and a N7. The Galaxy nexus is fine but the N7 has the same login issue.

anakette says:

Yup, happening to me on Evo 3D running ICS (SOS M 2.6.1), and, yes, I have Google Now installed.

*Edit: Seems to be fixed, now.

slickrikc21 says:

I thought it was only my phone but I guess not. Nexus on sprint running ICS. I ignored the issue and just happen to come here to check out the razr and what do you know google is experiencing issues... well was...

nelonez says:

Seems to be fixed now....

bj1126 says:

I had the issue here but it looks like it just cleared up. Galaxy Nexus running AOKP Build 2.

leeyiksheng says:

Seems to be working fine now.

Vagrant_1 says:

Been having that past few hours

John-Smith says:

Just restart your device. Worked for me.

n0obpr0 says:

And I was about to switch ROMs on my N7 lol It doesn't show up in my OG Droid =)

I just turned off my Nexus S 4G for about an hour after trying to sync over and over and trying the 2-step. At least it is taken care of now.

Yup. Having the SAME exact problem randomly on my GSM Galaxy Nexus with stock Jelly Bean.

Dre89 says:

Same issue here earlier, seems like it cleared up a few hours ago though

slave2theaxe says:

Had the issue on my GNex and Nexus 7 earlier tonight, but all is well now

itz_ritz says:

No errors on my iPhone 4s! Just playing. I've been getting em all night on my galaxy nexus but it looks like its fixed itself.

damden says:

Yes for the error too, on my Samsung Google Nexus with Jelly Bean.

I was getting same error and finally corrected by deleting all my cache for chrome browser. says:

I also had that kind of issue. But it seems ok now.

sean.geary says:


apollo305 says:

Thought is was jus me. Even did a factory reset. Dammit

scott.sb87 says:

Was happening to me tonight as well.

Rogers Galaxy Nexus (but with a rooted JB on it)

Just clear the cache in the Chrome app. That's how I fixed my issue.

sushi says:

Resetting Latitude (open Maps, select Latitude, verify permission so GNow can function) after the recent Maps update seems to have fixed the problem on tlmy GS3.

Typongtv says:

I got one too a couple of hours ago on my Nexus 7.

mikedtk says:

Same problem with my galaxy tab 8.9 and my galaxy nexus this morning (in Belgium).

Google now just shows blank white screen for me.....bummer. Gnex Verizon. Bugless Beast

Google now just shows blank white screen for me.....bummer. Gnex Verizon. Bugless Beast

dp86 says:

I had the same problem last night, but seems to have fixed itself this morning... VZW GS3

dahlheim says:

had it last night 9-10pm MST. fixed this am. yay google, and ac for easing my fears that i might have to struggle to find the problem within my phone.

vzw gnex codename android 3.5.

ClimberTy says:

Not too sure about that, I noticed the problem last night and I just ended up renewing my 2-step verification password. Then again they could have fixed the problem at 1am EST.

DcIpHa says:

Had this problem yesterday morning.

ojocell says:

Yep. Discovered this issue last night on my ASUS TF300. Figured it was a google problem and that it would eventually be fixed. I don't use google now much so I just played a few games and went to bed. Haven't checked this morning yet. Thanks to you guys I have some fixes to try if still needed.

bawoo says:

It's been giving this error on and off since last night. It happened earlier this morning too. VZW Gnex Vicious 4.1.1.

jean15paul says:

I had this problem last night, but it seemed to go away quickly.

keyslapper says:

Just a thought, but if I remember right, I started getting this on my Nexus7 just after updating Chrome. My GNex didn't see it at all.

I restarted my Nexus7 a couple times, but to no avail - the warning kept coming back.

At some point, I do remember going to Google, and I was signed in. I don't think that was when I stopped getting it. The warning was there in my status this morning, but I was offline at the time so I just swiped it away.

Just now, I did a reboot of the Nexus7 while tethered to the GNex (last night I was on my home WiFi). Wallet icon in the status bar, mail notification, Tasker ...

No warning.

The WiFi icon is still grey though.

Seems to be over. I have to wonder if it wasn't just a bump in the Chrome update path.


randyw says:

Had this issue on my GSM Gnex all last night. But this morning it seems to have stoped.

samagon says:

did have issue, don't have issue now. it didn't affect anything, other than being displayed. ignored it and went to bed. gone this morning.

I experienced this same situation on my ASUS T300T yesterday. After trying the "Next" button, I got a message that I should switch connections (wifi) or something of the sort. I finally did that and everything was fine. So far, everything is fine this morning. Haven't experienced this on my GS III, and, hopefully, won't.

Don't know if it matters, but my T300T is running Jelly Bean and my GS III is ICS.

cbn4forums says:

Oh man... I am really glad I follow this site daily sometimes hourly thanks guys for keeping us all updated on such things...

Last night I had just dropped a fresh CM10 nightly update on my Galaxy S3 and as soon as it rebooted I noticed the error... all I could say is: "$&%$ this update just messed me up".

Yes, I can confirm that the issue is fixed.


I updated my Gnex and TF201 at the same time to CM10 9/19 nightly and as soon as they rebooted i started noticing this issue... I thought the CM10 was causing it.

No errors in the last 12 hours now for me.

tyrnight1 says:

I got around the sign in problem, which I believe was caused by the new Google Maps Update, by going to settings/accounts/google then Maps and latitude, then by unchecking Enable Location history and then rechecking it so that you can "re-accept" the terms of service.

I also went to settings/location services and unchecked all the ticks and then rechecked them and selected agree to all the new terms of services.. and the Login error disappeared..

Hope this helps others..

scraptacular says:

Wouldn't you know I had just rooted and thought it was my fault that I was getting these sign-in errors. I was quite relieved when I didn't continue to see the messages today!


Here's the complete solution for "GOOGLE SIGN-IN ERROR" for android phones and tablete.

The method to fix this error is known as 2 steps verification method and I think this might surely help you to get rid of your google account error.

sinbad7 says:

I have encountered TWO new problems with my Android devices lately:

1. My Galaxy 10.1 Tablet keeps sending irritating messages ´Unable to login,username/password incorrect´ but still opens the email file???
I have tried everything to stop these plinging messages but to no avail.

2. My Galaxy SII smartphone will no longer automatically switch between
Landskape and normal display although I have it ticked to do so. I have
tried unticking,re-setting the phone,trying to delete Google email but
with no luck.

And I tried to de-install Google+ from my tablet as it is a total mess and
jumble of photos and effects without any clear menu to select it all.
Not a good idea to throw ALL the Google apps into ONE drawer...


Somebody help! I installed wifikill then my tab crashed. Now chrome works perfectly but play shows the sign in error

dwhitephp says:

Yep has been happening to me for about 5 days. Have changed password and recovered account. Does not stop. Appears to be related to "google play" and/or gmail. Google play reports the problem and gmail is not getting new messages.

When checking gmail from a PC, it is getting new messages. Phone says, "couldn't sign in" when trying to access gmail account. But, did receive the "you changed your password email" on the phone.

The messages started last night and it pops up so much that I am unable to access my keyboard long enough to do anything. What can I do?

this helped me.

1. download root browser
2. look for the folder named etc
3. open it and locate a .txt file named host
4 open host and u will see two ip nos. like
127.432.23.750 (plus other things written there)

5. dnt mind them.... just add a # sign infront of the ip number below. just like this

6. save the text file and then restart your phone.
