Google to delete inactive accounts 

Google to delete inactive accounts, policy effective from June 1, 2021

Accounts that have not been used for at least two years will be deleted

Google will start deleting inactive accounts in December 2023 at the earliest and take a phased approach

Google plans to send multiple warning notifications to users before deleting inactive accounts

The first accounts to be deleted will be those that were created and then never revisited by the user

The policy only impacts personal accounts, leaving organizations like schools and businesses untouched

Users with an inactive account will see those accounts being deleted starting in December 2023

Google recommends signing in at least once every two years to keep a Google account active

Deleted accounts would wipe out data across Gmail, Google Drive and Docs, Google Photos, Google Calendar, and YouTube
