Not many of people likes to think about they own death or death in particulary.
However let’s face it, we are all going to die someday. Unless you are wolverine (movie character).

It is important to make plans what will and should happend after you’re gone or can not use your account longer.
That’s why Google did launch a new feature that is called Inactive Account Manager.
I would describe it best like Google web testament or Google online testament feature.

Click here to go to Google’s inactive account manager.
You can also find it by going to your Google account settings page > Data tools > Inactive account manager.
