Setting up a digital executor

    A short article in The Guardian about making sure that people can do useful things with your digital stuff should you pass away.

    I have the Google inactive account manager set to three months. That should cover most eventualities.

    According to the wealth management firm St James’s Place, almost three-quarters of Britons with a will (71%) don’t make any reference to their digital life. But while a document detailing your digital wishes isn’t legally binding like a traditional will, it can be invaluable for loved ones.


    You can appoint a digital executor in your will, who will be responsible for closing, memorialising or managing your accounts, along with sharing or deleting digital assets such as photos and videos.
