Beginning December 14, all groups will be made private and content uploaded previously via the website will be removed.

After nearly two decades of operations, Yahoo Groups is shutting down and users who still have data on the once popular groups have until December 14 to save them.

The Verizon-owned tech company has disabled uploading of content on the Yahoo Groups site.

Beginning December 14, all groups will be made private and content uploaded previously via the website will be removed.

"Privacy is critical and we have taken this decision to better align with our overall principles. If you would like to keep any of the content you've posted or stored in your Yahoo Group, please download it by December 14," the Yahoo Groups team said in an email to users.

"Photos and files can be saved right from the Yahoo Groups site, or you can download your data from the Privacy Dashboard," the company said.

In the 18 years since Yahoo Groups' launch in 2001, millions have used the facility to connect with others around their common bonds and interests.
