Google to start deleting millions of inactive Gmail accounts in December

Google has issued a 3-week warning to inactive Gmail account holders.

The removal of inactive Gmail accounts is part of a major update to the email service.

The policy which was introduced this year is expected to kick into force by December 2023.

Google says it is updating its inactivity policy for Google Accounts to two years across all Google products.

The move by Google to delete inactive Google accounts has positive safety implications.

Affected inactive Gmail account holders will be sent multiple notifications before any action is taken.
