Google made the news a few days ago due to their starting of a process to block certain devices from using the Play Store. Users on an unsupported phone will now get the error “This Device Is Not Certified By Google,” and will be unable to install all the apps they enjoy. From Gmail to Maps, there are a number of devices that weren’t sanctioned by the company that no longer have access to the store. This fix is not guaranteed to work, but there is a process by which you can address the “This Device Is Not Certified By Google” error and get back to using your phone or tablet as you were before.

Many of the phones with the “This Device Is Not Certified By Google” error are cheap, no-name Chinese brands that weren’t intended to be supported by Google, but tablets from another major player have seen issues – with said player being Amazon. Many Amazon Kindle and Fire tablets no longer have access to the Google Play store – effectively rendering their status as an Android tablet pretty useless.

If your device presents the status “This Device Is Not Certified By Google” when accessing the Play Store, your options are limited – but there is an option you can try to see if you can get the full functionality of your phone and tablet back up and running.
