Google will begin deleting inactive Gmail accounts from December 2023 

The deletion process will target accounts that have been inactive for at least two years.

The deletion process will also delete the contents of the accounts, including data within Google Workspace, comprising Gmail, Docs, Drive, Meet, Calendar, and Google Photos 

The new policy aims to enhance security, as old and inactive accounts are more susceptible to cyber threats 

Google advises users to stay vigilant and take proactive measures to avoid deletion 

Before deleting an account, Google will send multiple notifications to both the account email address and the recovery email provided by the user.

The move is motivated by security concerns, as inactive accounts are prime targets for fraudsters 

Forgotten or unattended accounts often rely on outdated or reused passwords, lack two-factor authentication, and receive fewer security checks 

Unattended accounts are at least ten times less likely to have 2-step verification set up, making them easier targets for scammers and fraudsters worldwide.
