Iranian Internet users are reporting many popular Google products, including its email service Gmail, have been blocked.
Users in Iran reported Monday that Google Search was still available, but any product that required signing into an account was blocked. This included Gmail, Google Drive, Google Talk and others.
“Google is not accessible on https, but it’s open on http,” a Tehran-based computer science graduate told VOA in a Facebook interview.
Websites using https are considered secure, while http sites are susceptible to monitoring by virtually anyone, including governments.
