Google’s ‘Inactive Account Manager’ lets you manage your online data after death
Internet users around the world have expressed concern about what happens to their data after their demise. So the search giant has launched a new feature called Inactive Account Manager that gives us the control to organize our digital photos, documents and other virtual belongings in the event of our death.[blockquote cite=”www.dnaindia.com”] The job of Inactive Account Manager is to direct Google about what to do with users data. This service can also be used to pass on online data from Google Drive, Gmail, YouTube, or social network Google+ to an individual, or delete it in case the accounts are dormant for a long time. It also gives users the option to ‘burn’ their accounts deleting all virtual materials from all Google properties, including Google voice extensions.
[/blockquote] [blockquote cite=”Google”] We hope that this new feature will enable you to plan your digital afterlife – in a way that protects your privacy and security – and make life easier for your loved ones after you’re gone!
So now the users should stop worrying about who will read their personal mails or conversations after their death? Google’s new service will give them the option of a ‘Digital Will’.
