Data retention period

GOV.UK Notify keeps a temporary record of:

  • the content of the emails, text messages and letters you send
  • recipient email addresses, mobile numbers and addresses

By default, this data is only held for 7 days.

Once your service is live, you can choose the number of days you want Notify to keep details of the messages you send.

How to change your data retention period

  1. Go to the Settings page.
  2. Select Change on the Data retention period row.
