Facebook lets you choose an executor for your digital estate

September 12, 2018

We often think about putting our houses in the trust or providing a safety deposit box key to a loved one but who will handle your digital assets after death. To name a legacy contacts at Facebook, go to your security settings and edit the legacy contact. You can add a friend to act in this capacity and it gives you the choice to notify them or not. In addition, if you are the family member responsible for uploading irreplaceable family pictures to a website such as Flickr, it would be wise to let a family member know your login information.
