G Suite is useful because it contains so many great apps for such a wide variety of activities: email, scheduling, contacts, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, meetings, chat, notes, and much more. The downside to this impressive variety of uses is that your G Suite apps end up storing an equally impressive variety of work and personal information.
