Help with my Google issue
GetHuman-faaletat's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.

Instead, GetHuman-faaletat will need to dig through the advice provided by Google, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-faaletat can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-faaletat's own words
Just received from Google team that my gmail account will shut down on * April ****. Google* Team ******@***.com***:** PM (* hours ago)*to me**You've received this email because you have a consumer (personal) Google* account or you manage a Google* page.**In December ****, we announced our decision to shut down Google* for consumers in April **** due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google* and provide next steps, including how to download your photos and other content.**On April *nd, your Google* account and any Google* pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google* accounts. Photos and videos from Google* in your Album Archive and your Google* pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.**The process of deleting content from consumer Google* accounts, Google* Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google* account via activity log and some consumer Google* content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google* is deleted.**As early as February *th, you will no longer be able to create new Google* profiles, pages, communities or events.**See the full FAQ for more details and updates leading up to the shutdown.**If you're a Google* Community owner or moderator, you may download and save your data for your Google* Community. Starting early March ****, additional data will be available for download, including author, body, and photos for every community post in a public community. Learn more**If you sign in to sites and apps using the Google* Sign-in button, these buttons will stop working in the coming weeks but in some cases may be replaced by a Google Sign-in button. You'll still be able to sign in with your Google Account wherever you see Google Sign-in buttons. Learn more**If you've used Google* for comments on your own or other sites, this feature will be removed from Blogger by February *th and other sites by March *th. All your Google* comments on all sites will be deleted starting April *, ****. Learn more**If you're a G Suite customer, Google* for your G Suite account should remain active. Contact your G Suite administrator for more details. You can also expect a new look and new features soon.

We are grateful for the talented group of artists, community builders, and thought leaders who made Google* their home. It would not have been the same without your passion and dedication.**Google LLC **** Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA *******You have received this mandatory email service announcement to update you about important changes to your Google* Page, product or account.
