Google Docs was temporarily inaccessible to a "significant subset of users" on Wednesday, 15 November, locking tens of thousands of people out of their documents and files.

Downdetector.com, which tracks outages around the world, suggested US users were having the most significant issues - though there were some reports in Europe, where the outage occurred at a time that was outside of typical hours for most business.

About an hour later, the company said the Google Docs service had been restored "for some users", adding it expects "a resolution for all users in the near future".

According to Downdetector.com, the problem was mostly experienced by users in the USA, although the problem did occur outside of business hours for most businesses in Europe.

Google Docs states that they are still committed to high quality systems that fully secure files as well as keep content safe.
