After Twitter, it is time for Google to delete inactive Gmail accounts
Google has come with a surprising move. The company might delete inactive accounts. Here are all the details.
In the last couple days Twitter has deleted inactive accounts, and now it is time for Google to do it. Accounts that have been inactive for at least two years will be deleted beginning later this year. Personal Google Accounts are affected by this update, but school or business accounts are not. However, YouTube video accounts will not be deleted in order to preserve previous content.
Google to delete inactive accounts
At the earliest, the deletion process will begin in December 2023, and Google intends to proceed in stages, beginning with GMail accounts that were created but never used. In the months leading up to the deletion, multiple notifications will be sent to the account's email address and, if provided, the recovery email to ensure that users are well-informed. Before users' accounts are permanently deleted, this careful rollout aims to give them enough time to take action or retrieve any important data.
