In 2019, after Yahoo Groups completed 18 years, the company has decide to delete it. As announced in the month of October, Yahoo is putting a stop to Yahoo groups. The company gave a deadline to the customers that they will be removing all the data from the website on December 14 and you can download your data till that date.
