Yahoo will now delete all Groups data on January 31st, moving up the previous deadline of December 14th by several weeks…
Yahoo is giving its Groups members a small reprieve. The internet company previously announced it would shutter access and clean all data from Yahoo groups in mid December. Now, the deadline for members to download their information has been extended to January 31st, 11:59PM PST. Thereafter, all of Groups will go into the ultimate digital dustbin.
However, members of Yahoo groups still have approximately 7 weeks to download their data.
Yahoo Groups Members’ Data Download Deadline Extended to January 31st
Originally, back in October, the internet conglomerate announced it would shut down groups but still allow limited access to members.
People could still browse through the Groups directory, even request to be invited to a group. Additionally, current members can also email their Groups. But, much of that has changed since the initial announcement a couple of months ago.
We will stop making the content available or viewable from the https://t.co/AI347YbZxo portal at 11:59 PM PT on Dec 14, 2019, but we will not delete it until all requests submitted prior to Jan 31, 2020 have been processed.
