Accounts Inactive for 2 Years Will Delete by Google

As a security measure, Google has declared that it will delete inactive accounts that have lain dormant for at least two years. The revised policy is in effect right away, but the process of deleting it will start in December. Google will notify users several times before deleting inactive accounts gradually.

The accounts that were created but never used again will be the first ones to be deleted. It’s crucial to remember that this policy only applies to individual accounts; institutions like businesses and schools are unaffected.

Google’s decision is supported by internal data showing that outdated security measures and recycled passwords make older accounts more vulnerable to security risks. These accounts could be the target of spam, hacking, and phishing attacks.

This strategy differs from Google’s previous approach, which only involved deleting the content from inactive accounts on services rather than the accounts themselves.

Simply sign in to your Google account or any Google service and carry out any activity, such as reading an email, watching a video, or conducting a search, to keep your account active.
