Grandmother, daughter and granddaughter secure digital legacyAs we share precious holiday moments online, capturing our lives and identities in the digital realm, it's crucial to consider what happens to our online presence after we pass away. This concept of "digital afterlife" is becoming increasingly important in today's interconnected world.

Managing Your Digital Assets: Options to Consider

Fortunately, platforms like Facebook and Google offer tools to help us plan for our digital legacy. Here are some key options to consider:

Facebook Legacy Contact

  • Designate a trusted friend to manage your Facebook account upon your death.
  • Your Legacy Contact can write a pinned post, respond to friend requests, and update your profile picture and cover photo.
  • Learn how to set a Legacy Contact on Facebook.

Google Inactive Account Manager

  • Inform Google to notify a trusted contact if your account remains inactive for a specified period.
  • Upon your absence, your contact can download data from selected Google services.
  • Learn how to activate Google Inactive Account Manager.

Beyond Facebook and Google: Digital Heirs and Personal Representatives

  • Consider naming a "digital heir" or a personal representative in your will to manage all your digital assets.
  • This individual will have the authority to handle your online presence and ensure your wishes are carried out.

The Gift of Peace of Mind: Why Digital Estate Planning Matters

By taking control of your digital legacy, you provide your loved ones with invaluable peace of mind during a difficult time. A well-prepared digital estate plan eliminates confusion and ensures your online presence is handled according to your wishes.
