Google’s Bookmarks service will be decommissioned on September 30, 2021. The service will no longer be available after that, therefore customers who use it now must export their bookmarks to save them – To see if you have any saved bookmarks, go here.
Since its inception in 2005, the service has not had a large number of users. The closure on Google Bookmarks will not effect users’ browser bookmarks or starred places on Google Maps, according to Google.
Alternatives: Google Bookmarks
- Bookmark management applications like Saved, Raindrop, Pinboard, and Mozilla Pocket make it simple to keep track of your bookmarks locally.
- There are a slew of free and commercial options, including Booky, Dropmark, Evernote, and Start.me.
- Secure Bookmarks, Hush – private bookmarking and EverSync extensions available in the Chrome Web Store for those who desire an extra layer of protection.
What’s next? Users shouldn’t be too concerned at this stage, as Google is notorious for replacing most of its dead services with even better alternatives.
