Google to Delete Inactive Accounts: How to Keep Your Data Safe

Published

on


Google’s revised account policy states that beginning on December 1, 2023, the firm will erase all of the data associated with dormant accounts, including contacts, emails, calendar entries, photographs, and drive documents.

Google reveals that the goal of the system-wide cleanout is to shield users from security risks including spam, phishing schemes, and account theft. The organization announced in May that it planned to prevent security concerns when it introduced the new policy.

Accounts that are older are considerably more susceptible to security breaches, as they are less likely to use modern security features like two-step verification and/or more likely to use recycled passwords. So in an effort to reduce this danger, the account and all of its information may be deleted beginning in December if they haven’t been used or logged in for at least two years. In other words, if you haven’t accessed your account since 2021, Google could delete it.

What accounts will be deleted and how to avoid it? Is there any prevention for this from happening?

Google accounts that have not been utilized in any capacity or for a predetermined period of time will really all be deleted. Google explains that any account that remains unutilized or unlogged in for a minimum of two years will be deemed inactive. Re-logging at least once every two years is the simplest method to keep your Google account alive and avoid its deletion. It can be used to send or scroll through emails, Google searches, and YouTube videos. All done while logged into your Google account are additional activities that satisfy the requirements for account activity.

Activity may also be explained by current subscriptions that have been set up through your Google account, which include user accounts for publications and applications from outside sources. Removing an account renders the associated Gmail address unusable for creating a new Google account. So if you are concerned about someone obtaining your old, deleted account, rest assured. Also, Google said that it would notify the account email address and, if one was supplied, the recovery email several times in the months preceding the account deletion before the account was deleted.

Google Pixel Phones Say Goodbye to Samsung SoCs

Published

By


Google is the parent company of the Android operating system, and it has introduced several improvements and changes on the software side, which are truly appreciable, but if we look at the hardware side, the company hasn’t done any innovation for it. 

To manufacture its homemade Pixel lineup, the company has relied on different partners. Samsung was the crucial partner, which provides the chips for Google devices, but now, according to the information, the company is planning to join hands with its alternative, TSMC.

Google Pixel 10 is equipped with a 3nm processor

Before saying complete goodbye, Google will use the final Samsung-made chip for the upcoming Pixel 9 series, but then for the next Pixel series, i.e., the Pixel 10 series, the company will move to the TSMC’s fabricated processor. 

According to the information retrieved from the Chinese publication CTEE, Google will use the first 3nm chip with Tensor G5 made from the TSMC. It is always worth noticing that the G5 is Google’s first chip designed completely in-house. While earlier, the SoC was made with a designed LSI arm.

Now it’s time for Samsung to take some tough steps as its chip assembly is continuously losing big partners; however, there is no proper reason disclosed why Google is moving away from Samsung. It is worth noticing that TSMC is considered a highly efficient manufacturing chip, therefore it is able to provide quality products with consistency.

Apple’s Vision Headset May Feature Tech from Sony, Samsung, and LG

Published

Apple is looking forward to raising production of its new merged reality device, the Vision Pro, by reaching out to Samsung and LG. Apple has requested information on OLED+CF technology, a key component for the device’s display. 

The new report suggests that Apple is focusing on securing a trustworthy supply chain for OLED displays. Japan’s Sony has supplied Oledos for Vision Pro; however, it is not resulting in increased production capacity. There is unsureness in the outlook of China regarding technology and geopolitics.

It has yet to be clear if the two domestic panel firms will actively respond to Apple’s request or not. If the report is to be believed, Apple was found to have recently sent a request for information (RFI) related to the development of OLEDoS (OLED on Silicon) to Samsung Display and LG Display. 

The term RFI here stands for a document exchanged at a stage before the Request for Quotation (RFQ) sent by the set manufacturer to the parts manufacturer once the product specifications have been decided. It is mentioned in the RFI as a product that applies a color filter (CF) to a white (W) organic light-emitting diode (OLED). 

WOLED+CF OLEDOS indicates color as white light from WOLED passes through red (R), green (G), and blue (B) color filters. Vision Pro, initially released in the United States, also used WOLED+CF OLEDOS. The additional product specs include a display size of 2.0 to 2.1 inches with a 1700 PPI pixel density.

However, the reason why Apple is sending an RFI has yet to be analyzed. The two main possibilities behind this appear: for instance, maybe Apple is setting up to introduce a more affordable version of the Vision Pro, reducing the price even for the base model. Another possibility is that RFI could also be moved to secure a stable supply of Oledos panels, which are a main component in the Vision Pro’s display. 

Sony, Apple’s current Oledos partner, has top-notch production capacity (900,000 units per year). Apple sends inquiries to Samsung and LG regarding this OLED+CF technology. On the other hand, LG is a leader in WOLED+CF development, despite the fact the fact that it currently lacks a production line. Apple needs to diversify Oledo suppliers due to limitations with Sony.

Google Workspace getting Google Vids: Lets you create videos with AI

Google is expanding its ways to offer a new convenience facility as its workspace is getting a new video creation tool called Google Vids. 

Google Workspace is introducing a new video creation tool called Google Vids, or you can call it ‘PowerPoint on steroids.’ Google announced it a few months ago, and it is now announcing a free, public testing phase.

This new facility, named Google Vids, permits you to both work with existing video content and create video from scratch. 

Create videos from scratch with the help of Gemini for particular options, such as the ability to outline a script, and create multiple slides until you find the usable video content. Once the first draft has been prepared, the user can then adapt the output to their satisfaction, customizing or even deleting slides, as well as working on texts, images, and more. 

Once you are done with the work, you can save the format with an MP4 extension. As compared to other more classically designed tools included in Google Workspace, Google Vids appear to be more focused on AI.

While starting a new project in Google Workspace, you can use the Gemini prompt to give instructions to the AI assistant to enhance your experience. The giant has already made this prompt box available. Noticeably, the documents you have already uploaded to Google Drive Gemini can be analyzed. 

All the functionality mentioned above regarding Google Vids is described by one of our colleagues, Android Authority, who also wanted to show a demonstration of Google Vids’ capabilities using the following prompt: “Inform our employees about the latest discoveries on the benefits of video games. Highlight how video games can improve cognitive function, problem-solving skills, and social interaction.” 

However, at the moment Google Vids is running in a very early testing phase, so it might be possible you can face some roughness.
