Google has recently notified Google Photos users that due to a "technical issue," in Google Photos, some users' private videos were "incorrectly exported to unrelated users' archives," 9to5Google reported Monday.

The technical glitch happened on Nov. 21, 2019, and was fixed four days later, on Nov. 25, and it apparently only affected users who used Google Takeout to request a "Download your data" export, which included content stored in Google Photos.

On the flipside, users who downloaded their data now possibly have someone else's videos in their archive (which, by the way, may be incomplete).
