How do you pass on your passwords when you die?

Just like creating a living will or power of attorney, it’s a good idea to set up your online accounts so that someone else can access them after you die.

It’s not nice to think about a day when we’re gone, but facing reality can save bereaved families and heirs work and grief. If you haven’t set up digital legacy contacts or other means to share accounts after your death, your heirs will typically have to go through a lengthy process to access your data. In some cases, such as with some password managers, heirs may not be allowed access unless you take steps beforehand.
