Google is Set to Delete Millions of YouTube Videos this December from inactive accounts

Recommended Posts


Starting later this year, we are updating our inactivity policy for Google Accounts to 2 years across our products.



Starting later this year, if a Google Account has not been used or signed into for at least 2 years, we may delete the account and its contents – including content within Google Workspace (Gmail, Docs, Drive, Meet, Calendar), YouTube and Google Photos.

I wonder how much heavy lifting "may delete" is doing here. I have a hard time believing YouTube will purge videos with tons of views on a years dead account.


Yeah, like the history of dance video that was the most viewed video for a long time. I bet that account isn't doing much these days but this is something you'd certainly keep around right?
