Google announced yesterday that it will start deleting accounts that have been inactive for at least two years.

The updated policy takes effect immediately, but they will not begin deleting accounts until December. Google plans to send out multiple warning notifications to users. The first accounts on the chopping block will be those that were created and then never revisited by the user.

The decision is based on findings that older accounts are more likely to rely on recycled passwords and less likely to employ up-to-date security measures, making them vulnerable to issues like phishing, hacking and spam.

To save your account, all you need to do is log in to sign into your Google account or any Google service and read an email, watch a video, perform a single search or any number of other activities.
