“We are introducing new policies for consumer accounts that are inactive or exceed their storage limit in Gmail, Drive (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms and Jamboard files) and / or Photos to align better with common practices throughout the industry, “says the US technology. Google also advises the user that “if he is inactive in one or more of these services for two years (24 months), he can remove the content of the products in which he is inactive.”

The search engine has wanted to reduce the weight of the measure, expressing that 80% of users will need a minimum of 3 years to be able to fully occupy the 15 GB of free storage offered by the platform. In the event that the limit is exceeded for two years, Google will be able to remove your content in Gmail, Drive and Photos. “We will notify you several times before attempting to remove any content so that you have ample opportunity to take action. The easiest way to keep your account active is to periodically visit Gmail, Drive or Photos on the web or on your mobile device, while you are connected and connected to the internet », they express from the technology.
