Now, new Google service that manages your digital life after death
Washington: Internet search giant Google has now figured out a way to manage your emails when you die.
Google is working on a new feature that let`s you leave instructions for your online data after death.
The search giant announced the launch of Inactive Account Manager.
According to CBS News, the service is like a will and testament for your digital life.
The feature only applies to your Google accounts, like Gmail, Goolge+ and YouTube .
If you enable the feature, you have a few options for your account, including giving loved ones access to your data or wiping everything.
So that Google doesn`t mistake your trek around the world for something morbid, there is an option to send an alert to a mobile phone or alternate email address to prevent any action on the account.
According to the report a user can set the time frame of inactivity before Google takes action.
If there is no activity on the account for the time specified and no attempts to halt the process, close friends or family can be notified automatically, the report said.
You can choose up to 10 people to notify and select individuals who can see your personal data, it added.
