Gujarat High Court Intervenes in Case of Engineer Locked Out of Google Account

| Updated: April 2, 2024 20:31

The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday intervened in the case of a 24-year-old engineer who was locked out of his Google account. The account was flagged for “explicit content” after the engineer uploaded a childhood photo of himself being bathed by his grandmother.

Justice VD Nanavati issued an order restraining Google from deleting the engineer’s account. The court was informed by the engineer’s lawyer, Dipen Desai, that Google had communicated its intention to delete the account in April.

Desai argued that the engineer’s Google account, active since 2013, contained valuable data including photos, emails, and business transactions. Furthermore, the account’s suspension had also prevented the engineer from accessing Google Pay.

The engineer was notified on May 11, 2023, that his account had been blocked due to the upload of the aforementioned photo, which Google flagged as “explicit content” potentially involving child sexual abuse or exploitation.

Despite serving a legal notice to Google in August 2023, the engineer received no response. Following his petition, the high court issued a notice to Google on March 15, but the tech giant has yet to respond.

Taking into account the engineer’s arguments, Justice Nanavati directed Google not to permanently delete the account.
