Its Easy to Know, How to Delete/Deactivate Google Account
Google Mail is one of the most used Email services. However, if you think that you need to get rid of an Email ID that was created way back and you do not use or do not intend to use it further then, you can simply have it deleted or deactivated.
- Ensure that the Email is not being used for important communication even though the Email Id is not per your liking.
- The Gmail ID is directly linked to your Google Plus account. So make sure you are not going to use the Google Plus account or have not been very active in it. Else, all your data could be lost once Account Deleted.
- It is advisable and very important that you go through your lists, message etc before deciding on deletion of the Google Account for a particular ID.
- Take time to decide if you really want to delete or deactivate the Google Account.
- Ensure you have another Google Account created for your future use and communication that can be shared to your family, friends and business associates.
I think, I have covered the very basic and main reasoning to understand and to go ahead with deletion or deactivation of Google account.
Some among you might think, why should you bother if you are not going to use the Google Plus or Gmail account and leave it alone? The only reason I am showing you this is because due to some reason I do not want or anybody would want to miss on any communication. Like, a person would have sent you an email message which would be important but, you have not checked it, as you do not use the ID anymore. The sender thinks that you have received it but, not replying or may be the worst thing that you are ignoring or avoiding that person. There could be a little stress in the relationship unintentionally when it can be easy avoided by following these easy and short steps.
When you deactivate your Google or Gmail Account the sender will be notified about the non-delivery of email by an auto responder email. I think you will agree with me to be notified that your email has not reached the intended recipient and hence, you would contact him in other ways. Right!
