I started seeing this error message today whenever I open Google Keep. It reads, "Access to Keep is unauthorised".

So I have archived my notes and taken a screenshot to post here.

Error message on opening Google Keep

Can't find anything about this on Google. Any idea what this is?

OnePlus One, latest stock ROM, COS13, non-root. All apps updated to latest versions​.

And this issue seems to extend to the Google Keep web app also. Its says, "You’ve been signed out. Please reload the page to sign in again and continue working."


I no longer see the error message. It resolved somehow, and it's probably due to some work done from Google's server side.

  • I'm surprised by how many "mine too" answers your question attracted in merely 2 hours... – Andy Yan Apr 11 '17 at 10:42
  • @AndyYan Probably because my question is now the top search result on Google. google.ae/… – NVZ Apr 11 '17 at 10:42

This is an outage on the Google side, see their G Suite Apps dashboard. Fix should be on the way.

The current outage (as of 11 April 2017) has its own status page, and you can get details on future outages via the above dashboard link.

  • +1 Thanks for that link. But I'm not sure what it means. Is it resolved already? I started seeing the issue only today. – NVZ Apr 11 '17 at 9:08
  • What timezone is the time you quoted? – Ferrybig Apr 11 '17 at 14:23
