For this reason, Google may close your Gmail account next year

Whether it’s a smartphone or a computer, Google’s various services offer a wide range of benefits to the device. But before the end of this year, the tech giant has announced a bunch. It is already known that from next year, users will have to spend some money to use Google Photo storage or special editing tools. But that’s not all, Google recently announced that multiple Google Accounts or Gmail IDs will be blocked from June 1, 2021.

Having a Google Account is essential to use Google’s various services on Android devices and to get other benefits of the Internet. In this case, many have more than one Google account, which is more or less used or inactive. According to the report, Google is going to make some changes in its policy, which will lead to the closure of several accounts from next year. But there is no reason to worry. Google will only delete completely those Google Accounts that have not been used for two years or more or have run out of storage.

That said, before the new policy goes into effect, every Google Account user will be notified by sending a notification. The inactive account and the associated Gmail, Google Drive, Documents, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms and Jamboard files will then be deleted. However, if any other Google account is associated with that inactive account as a trusted contact and it has been inactive for 3-18 months, then all the important information of the deleted account will be delivered to it.

So to prevent your Google Account from being deleted, log in to your mobile, laptop or desktop with a regular Gmail ID. Also use Gmail, Drive, Photos and other services and the Internet through your Google Account. If possible, delete unnecessary media, files, etc. from that account. This will keep the account running smoothly.
