Google set to deactivate your GMAIL account next year: How to keep it active?
New Delhi : In a new policy update, Google has decided to shut down Gmail accounts which have remained inactive for more than 2 years. The new policy will be implemented on June 1, 2021.
The company, however, will send multiple notifications to the users before going ahead with the process of deactivating an account.
One of the easiest way to keep your Gmail account active is to remain active and keep visiting it once in a while.
Issuing a statement, the company said, “The new policies are for consumer accounts that are either inactive or over their storage limit across Gmail, Drive (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms and Jamboard files) and/or Photos — to better align with common practices across the industry.”
“If you’re over your storage limit for two years, Google may delete your content across Gmail, Drive and Photos,” it stated further.
