From December internet giant Google will be shutting down accounts that haven't be accessed in two years.

It's part of a plan to tighten security, minimising the risk of hackers getting access to people's old files.

Technology commentator Peter Griffin says it's been in the plans for a while.

Griffin spoke to Charlotte Cook.
