Your Online Life After Death

Attorney Amy Heavey-Halloran was featured in an article in the Sacramento Bee this weekend - click here to read the full article, and get helpful tips for protecting your digital information after death.


How would Facebook, Linkedln, Gmail,Twitter, .... even know if the person of those accounts had died? Couldn't you just call them and pretend to be the dead person? This is a good article to read, think about, probably act upon, and share with others.

Most online services (in addition to banks, financial institutions and other entities) will request a certified copy of the death certificate as proof that the person has died. But your point about someone pretending to be another person online is why we’ve been so conditioned to keep our passwords and usernames so protected. Hopefully the article will motivate online users to investigate the policies and procedures of the different sites utilized and leave detailed instructions on how those sites should be managed at death.
