Google Account Services Deleting! June 2021-2023!

Last Update: December 14, 2020

hey hi Wonderful WAers!

It's Monday, December 14, 2020.

Alert Notification received from Google Account Services today!

Perhaps some of you wonderful members have already seen it?!

If you are a user of Google services such as Gmail, Google Drive (including Google Docs) and Google photos ... and may have dormant accounts or inactive ones --- listen UP!

Content will be deleted in those accounts effective June 1, 2021, if you are one of two criteria: either inactive or over your storage limit, and seemingly Google Account Services plan to send you email reminders and notifications in advance and prior to deleting any content.

Comment: (Well, so they say! ... Suggest you might want to check and verify your accounts to delete or retain anything you don't require in advance, just in case!)

Apparently, your accounts won't be impacted by these changes unless you've been inactive or over your storage limit for two years.

As the restructuring policy goes into effect on June 1, 2021, the earliest it would be enforced by Google Account services would be by June 1, 2023.

Technically, you might have two years -- maybe?

*(Note: Perhaps that's the reason why Google had an 'outage' reported earlier today by (Ropesa) in a question. Who knows? ...

here's Rose's query and discussion thread from today > Rose's Q.

Well, that's it folks, for now --- the commercial break is over for the moment!

Zoom back onto the awesome WA platform and carry onward & upward to Success,

cheerio ...



yes, by the way, that's right, check your accounts for anything you might value -- kinda like banking accounts --- check and ensure that your bank accounts are active otherwise, they can also 'delete' so to speak! ...

Good Morning Keisha,

Yes, for both my Gmails I have received this notification. Every day, I use both of them and only for emails.
In January I always clean my files and that gives a lot of storage space back again, so I think I am in the no problem zone.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

Thanks for the warning, Keisha. I had seen something about this while reading emails on my phone this morning

I had better get stuck in and do some major deletions. I am guilty of hoarding, not by choice but forgetfulness.

Who knows what 2 years from now will be, but I will abide. I don't want to deal with an 'or else' situation!

Cheers :)
