Gmail’s autocomplete is damaged
Earlier than you ship out one thing via Gmail, be certain that to verify in case you have the fitting individual within the recipient area — belief us on this one. Google’s e mail service has been having autocomplete points, which individuals began noticing over the previous few days. It appears to maintain suggesting contacts you do not e mail that always as an alternative of these you ship digital missives to commonly. So, as an alternative of suggesting Joe Coworker if you sort “J” within the “To” area, you get Joe Shmoe, John Doe and a few random J you drunkenly met at a celebration as soon as in school. Clearly, you would not need to ship any of them the tremendous secret work doc you’ve got been engaged on. Gmail introduced on Twitter that it is investigating the difficulty, however till then, all you are able to do is to maintain an in depth eye on who you are sending emails to.
We’re conscious of a problem with Gmail and auto-full and are presently investigating. Apologies for any inconvenience.
