A Google account can be used to work with many services, such as Gmail, Goolge, Google Drive, YouTube and many others. In addition, through this account you can log in to many third-party sites and social networks. But sometimes there are situations when you need to delete your Google account.
What you need to know before deleting an account
Before deleting your Google account, you should understand that after deletion you may lose access to many data, including contacts, email, bookmarks, files, etc.
Data that will become unavailable:
- All services from Google: Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar and others.
- YouTube subscriptions, as well as music, books, and movies.
- Information stored in the Chrome browser: bookmarks, extensions, passwords, etc.
In the event that the account is also used on the Xiaomi smartphone, access to contacts, as well as data that was saved through the Android Backup service, will be lost.
What to do before uninstalling
In the event that you use your account for a long time, you probably have important data, such as emails, notes, photos and any other information that has a certain value for you.
When such data is scarce, they can be downloaded manually or individually. If there are a lot of them, then you can use a special tool from Google to copy:
First, open your Google Account settings by going to accounts.google.com.
Go to the “Personal Information and Privacy” section, then select “Content Management”.
Then select “Create Archive” and specify the content that you are going to save.
Next, specify the type of archive in which the stored data will be packed. At the same time, you can also send a copy of the data to yourself by e-mail or save it in cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
After all save settings are set, you should wait some time during which the archive will be created. The duration of this process depends on the amount of data stored.
It is also very important to remember that Google email can be connected to various sites and can be used for authorization in different services. Therefore, before deleting, do not forget to change the email address in these services to another.
