Google, in its blog post, has launched an “Inactive Account Manager” (“not a great name, we know,” Google said) page that can be used as your digital will.
Google asks you what you would like to do with your images, files and other virtual data when you stop using your account for a long period of time, i.e after 3, 6, 9 months or 1 year. This service covers all Google accounts, +1s; Blogger; Contacts and Circles; Drive; Gmail; Google+ Profiles, Pages and Streams; Picasa Web Albums; Google Voice and YouTube.
In case, you were taking a long vacation, Google will send you a text message to your cellphone along with an email to a non-Google account before taking any action.
“This new feature will enable you to plan your digital afterlife in a way that protects your privacy and security,” writes Google product manager Andreas Tuerk.
Google gives you two options:
1. You can choose to have all your data deleted.
