Google has announced that a recently squashed Gmail bug may have deleted some user emails. The issue impacted users who accessed their emails through the Gmail for iOS app, a mobile browser, or the offline version of Gmail between Jan. 15 and Jan. 22, 2014.
The company did not announce how many were affected by the bug. Google does say the problem “is now fixed.”
The temporary bug resulted in some users accidentally deleting emails and reporting others as spam, when applying those actions to other messages. It surfaced in a software update.
In a notice to users, Google says “We encourage you to check your Trash and Spam folders before February 14, 2014 for any items you did not intend to delete or mark as spam and move them back to your inbox. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
