Knocked Off Gmail? You're Not Alone

"Can anyone still use smoke signals?"

If you were suddenly knocked of your Gmail account Friday around 2 p.m. ET and were feverishly trying to sign back in so you could finish your last Gchat with no success, you are not alone.

Many on Twitter also noted the issue.

The outage-checking website Down for Everyone or Just Me noted that it "looks down from here."

Before 2:30 p.m., Google's email service seemed to come back online.
