Google Will Delete Inactive User Data Next Year

Google Will Delete Inactive User Data Next Year

Currently people have an account and are familiar with a number of services from Google be it a Gmail service, GoogleDrive, documents and photos. Not surprisingly, storage capacityGoogle continues to erode.

Google it will also perform a ‘clean-up’ program to increase the remaining available storage capacity with an automatic data erase action.

Then the deletion is only applied to accounts that have been inactive for two years.

The plan is that this new policy will be implemented in June 2021, as quoted by GSM Arena.

Later, the system will automatically delete documents on accounts that have been inactive for two years in June 2023.

Some of the data is data that is covered by all services Google such as Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Jamboard, Gmail, Photos, Drawings, Forms and Sites.

Comprehensive information about this has also been submitted via the help site column Google. In that explanation, users who do not want their data to be deleted must occasionally carry out activities with that account.

With this policy, Google want to give priority to active users and really need data storage to support a number of purposes.
