Google Lets You Manage Your Digital Afterlife

What should happen to your online data after your death? You want it deleted or given to someone else? Now Google released features to let you select what should happen to your data. Watch a video report below explaining this new offering.

Google introduced new features to manage your digital afterlife. For example, you can choose to have your data deleted — after three, six, nine or 12 months of inactivity. Or you can select trusted contacts to receive data from some or all of the following services: +1s; Blogger; Contacts and Circles; Drive; Gmail; Google+ Profiles, Pages and Streams; Picasa Web Albums; Google Voice and YouTube.

The feature is called Inactive Account manager and can be accessed here.

Watch the video below from the Wall Street Journal explaining the new feature and its impact.
