Google Now Lets You Plan For The Fate of Your Data For When You Die

Ever wonder what happens to your Internet data after you die? Google has introduced a new tool that lets you make plans for your digital estate for when you pass on. It’s called the Inactive Account Manager.

The feature lets you decide what Google should do with your digital life after you have been inactive for a specified period of time.

Here is more from the Google blog:

For example, you can choose to have your data deleted — after three, six, nine or 12 months of inactivity. Or you can select trusted contacts to receive data from some or all of the following services: +1s; Blogger; Contacts and Circles; Drive; Gmail; Google+ Profiles, Pages and Streams; Picasa Web Albums; Google Voice and YouTube. Before our systems take any action, we’ll first warn you by sending a text message to your cellphone and email to the secondary address you’ve provided.
