If you have an Xbox Live Gamertag then you should take note of this article. As of this week, Xbox Live Gamertags will expire if you don’t log in frequently enough.

This was revealed in Microsofts latest service agreement in which they included a few new additions to the Xbox Live portion.

Here’s an excerpt:

“You must sign into Xbox Services at least once in a five-year period, otherwise, you may lose access to the Gamertag associated with your account and that Gamertag may become available for use by others.”

So by this new agreement you just login in with your Gamertag at least once every five years, which is quite a lot of time to be honest.

This all comes as part of Microsofts latest effort to free up old and unused Gamertags. Recently they released a lot of them into the wild.
