Google speeds up the removal of Google+ for consumers
In October, Google announced plans to shut down Google+ for consumer users that would take place over a 10-month period and officially take place next August. After a bug was introduced in a November software update, Google has decided to speed up the process. The sunsetting process will be completed on April 2019, instead of August. In addition, all Google+ APIs will sunset in the next 90 days.
According to the company, the bug impacted about 52.5 million users through the Google+ API.
“We discovered this bug as part of our standard and ongoing testing procedures and fixed it within a week of it being introduced. No third party compromised our systems, and we have no evidence that the app developers that inadvertently had this access for six days were aware of it or misused it in any way,” David Thacker, VP of product management for G Suite, wrote in a post.
