Google made the decision to shut down its social network last year after the revelation of a security vulnerability. It even moved up the website’s final day after the existence of a data bug exposing 52.5 million users’ info came to light. Now, the tech giant has revealed that Google+ will no longer exist after April 2nd, 2019, and it has even detailed the steps it’s taking leading to that day.

While we have a couple more months before April 2nd, you’ll no longer be able to create new profiles, pages, communities and events starting on February 4th. The company will also sunset the ability to use Google+ for comments on Blogger on the same day, though other sites will have until March 7th. In the next few weeks, Google+ Sign In buttons will stop working and will be replaced by Google Sign in buttons in some cases. However, Mountain View will wait until the shutdown day itself to close all consumer accounts and pages, as well as to delete all Google+ comments users made over the past years.  The enterprise version will continue to live on, though.
