Did you already know about Google's recent update on inactive accounts? if you've not already read this article.
Google works diligently every day to protect us and our private information by preventing illegal access to our Google Accounts through their built-in security features. And to keep us safe, they need to have strict privacy policies across all of their products that limit how long they retain our personal files and any data related to them on their servers. Even if we stop using their services, Google still wants to safeguard our private information and stop any unwanted access to our accounts.
Therefore, they are updating the inactivity period for a Google Account to two years across all their products and services. This change started rolling out on August 13 and will apply to any Google account that’s been inactive, meaning it has not been signed into or used within a two-year period. An inactive account and any content in it will be eligible for deletion on December 1, 2023.
