Google launches a tool that helps users plan their digital afterlife!
The internet search engine leader will be the first company to address the very sensitive issue of data storage, once a person has died or can no longer use their account.
Users can now plan for their digital afterlife using Google’s inactive account manager by deciding what happens to their email, Google Plus and other personal data.
‘We’re launching a new feature that makes it easy to tell Google what you want done with your digital assets when you die or can no longer use your account,’ Google said in a blog post.
Users can choose to delete their data after three, six or 12 months of inactivity, or choose to pass the data to another person once they have gone.
Besides Gmail and Google Plus, other services covered include YouTube, the photo-sharing service Picasa and Blogger.
