How do I delete my account?
- Gmail has updated their policy with regards to deleting accounts/data permanently so please note the following…
1) An account can be “disabled” which means that login is disabled and messages are left queued in the Inbox. However, the account data remains in Google’s servers until they expire (currently 18 months from the date of disabling the account). If your main concern is that somebody might access or view your old messages then a disabled account still allows you to prevent them being accessed after 18 months and may be sufficient for your needs.
2) An “active” account has been deleted permanently, but you can request Google to delete any of your message content and/or contact list before this happens for an additional charge (this used to be free but there was such an outcry against people accidentally deleting their data that it now costs money to delete information completely). You cannot recover an active Gmail account once it is deleted because there will be nothing left on Google’s servers, but you can always set up a new one.
