Google to stop supporting logins in mobile browsers with no cookie support from May

Google has some bad news for users with old mobile phones.

Google has revealed that they would stop supporting mobile browsers which lack support for authentication cookies from May this year.

This would only affect users who login to their Google account from these devices.

Regular Google services like search and maps can be accessed without logging in.

Google spoke about this policy change:

In order to focus on new feature development, we’re ending this legacy mechanism. Beginning May 1, 2012, we will support only mobile browsers that are able to use cookies. On these legacy mobile browsers, you can continue to use other Google services that don’t require user login, such as Search and Maps.
