SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Google has introduced a new tool that lets users decide what happens to their online presence if they pass away.
It’s called the inactive account manager. Basically, it lets you decide how long your account needs to be inactive for whatever reason. You could be dead, you could be on a really long vacation, or you might just decide that after three months, it’s time for someone else to take over your account.
It’s up to you to decide what happens when the time frame you have chosen arrives. Your account can be automatically deleted or you could have trusted people access it. Of course, this includes your Gmail, Goolge Drive, Google Voice, YouTube and the like.
