Google’s New Inactive Account Manager Gives You Control Over Your Digital Afterlife What will happen to your Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive and Google+ accounts after you die? That’s probably not something you really want to think about, but as more and more of our data now lives online, that’s sadly a question that comes up with some regularity.

This is a minor, but still notable, change impacting Google users who may have previously relied on that “More” menu to better filter their search results.
