Users report Google Calendar bugs that cause random events

San Francisco: Tech giant Google’s time management and scheduling calendar service is said to generate random events based on Gmail emails and newsletters.

There is no clear pattern for this bug, but it appears that emails with the mentioned dates may be the culprit, reports 9To5Google.

A common event that several users have noticed is the “US Financial Privacy Notice”, which is displayed as an all-day calendar event, as well as a warning notification on Android phones with the same title.
Additionally, newsletters also seem to trigger these events.

Taking to Twitter, several users reported the problem.

While one user said: “My @googlecalendar has started generating random events based on emails I’ve received and it’s just random marketing content and newsletters”, another commented: “Random bug(?) @googlecalendar. Random A bunch of emails are showing up as events in my calendar.”

The exact cause is still unclear, but users can fix it by going to Google Calendar settings under Settings > Gmail Events. This should stop creating events when the checkbox for “Automatically add Gmail events to my calendar” is unchecked, the report said.
