GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Should you die, what happens to all of the information you have stored online? What about all those family photos you have uploaded to sites like Picasa or Flicker? A will is where you ensure that your family will be able to have those photos and information. The executor you name in your will needs to have authorization to access your accounts and transfer information.
Services are now available to encrypt and keep your digital information such as Legacy Locker and Planned Departure. Google also allows the Inactive Account Manager to give your consent to your executor to retrieve your online accounts. You can store a list of passwords and accounts in a safety deposit box as well, but it would have to be constantly updated to keep it current. In a digital age, this is one good reason to have a will and review it periodically.
