Google set to delete older accounts this week, make sure yours isn’t included!

Google is currently gearing up for another round of pruning of inactive Google and Gmail accounts this week. If you have an older account you’d like to keep a hold of and haven’t used in a while, now is the time to log back in and flag to Google that the account is active and in use. If you don’t, you could lose access to older emails as well as the contents of your Google Drive, and Google Photos.

Google’s inactive account policy changed in May of 2023 to include accounts dormant for two years or more. However, this only applies to personal Google Accounts, with schools and businesses not affected by the coming purge. The reason for Google’s pruning has to do with security as the brand believes accounts inactive for two years or more are much more likely to be compromised and pose a potential risk to others.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
