Act Now: Google to Delete Inactive Gmail Accounts

Google will delete millions of inactive Gmail accounts in December 2023. If you have not used your Gmail account for two years, take action quickly to save your account from deletion.

Heyy! Gmail users. If you are not an active user, all the data and information in Gmail will soon get deleted from the account.

As per the recent policy of Google, a deadline is there for all users to secure their accounts. The leading motive of Google is to make the online environment safe.

If you are a consistent user of Gmail, Docs, Photos and Calendar, then this is not a condition of worry for you. These changes only impact those who are not active users.

The main underlying reason for the updation of policy is to enhance safety. Older accounts have more chances to come under cyber threats. Google clarified, "If a Google Account has not been used or signed into for at least 2 years, we may delete the account and its contents." This includes data within Google Workspace, which comprises Gmail, Docs, Drive, Meet, Calendar, and Google Photos.

The main concern of Google is protection. The accounts will come under cyber-attacks that lack two-step verification and have old passwords.

The Gmail deletion process is not their wilfulness, but this is one of the protective measures to protect the accounts against illegal activity.
To be still in connection with your Gmail account, Inactive users need to log in to their account before the deadline of the deletion process.

Google suggests its users follow a few subtle steps to avoid the deletion risk of the account. Google will send ample notifications to the users' registered and recovery email addresses to protect their accounts from deletion.
