What is your digital legacy?
Most of us leave digital footprints daily!
We Tweet opinions, Facebook our friends and Instagram our delicious meals and sunshine filled holidays, whilst LinkedIn showcases careers and contacts.
What happens to these accounts when we die?
Social media providers have different ways of dealing with the death of a user. It’s worth finding out what’s what, and making arrangements for what happens when you die.
You could appoint a digital legacy contact, and give them a list of your social media accounts.
Maybe you would prefer to leave information with your Will, and then your Executors can deal with your online presence at the time.
You don’t need to leave log-in details, and social media providers won’t release this either, so your personal representatives can’t access your private messages or profile settings after your death.
