But making plans for what happens after you’re gone is really important for the people you leave behind. So that the search engine Giant has come up with a new feature. using that feature one can tell Google what you want done with your Google account when you die or can no longer use your account.
The new feature is named “Google Inactive Manger”, Google itself claimed that this name is not great name for this service. You can get this feature in Google account settings page. By using this service, you can tell the Google, that What should Big G will take action for your Inactive account or if you have kicked the bucket.
What Google said with the following words in the new account inactivity Manager:
“What should happen to your photos, emails and documents when you stop using your account? Google puts you in control.
You might want your data to be shared with a trusted friend or family member, or, you might want your account to be deleted entirely. There are many situations that might prevent you from accessing or using your Google account. Whatever the reason, we give you the option of deciding what happens to your data.
