Google to delete accounts that do not meet basic and mandatory requirement
Google-operated by Google LLC which owns Gmail, a mailing platform that has been in existence for about 2 decades.
In recent days, Google announced the deletion of millions of email accounts. The popular search engine’s messaging system arrived in 2004 under the name Gmail and was quickly adopted by users. Today, it is one of the most widely used email systems in the world.
A victim of its popularity, and with millions of new subscribers every year, the company is forced to delete little-used accounts, the vast majority of which were created for single use and then fell into oblivion. This has raised concerns among the beneficiaries of the service, for fear of having their account deleted.
What kind of accounts will disappear?
Intending to free up space on its servers, and to continue to strengthen the security of users, Google has taken this decision. Among the arguments is that of protection since, according to the company, an abandoned account is an easy target for fraudsters and hackers. Gmail accounts make up a large part of the spam we receive daily.
The second reason is because of space issues – for every inactive account that is deleted, the opportunity for a new one opens up.
The targeted accounts are those that have not been used for two years. So, if your account has been inactive for this period, it could be gone.
How can I prevent my account from being deleted?
The easiest way is to reactivate the use of it. To do this you have to go to your inbox and send an email so that the activity is renewed. One of these options may help:
1. Connecting to one of the applications with Gmail access (YouTube, etc.).
2. Connecting to Google with your account and searching on Google
3. Connecting to the PlayStore and downloading an application.
4. Go to your email and sign in or send messages
5.Log into your inbox and access Google Drive
