Melanie Pinola, a staff writer at Wirecutter, covers how to assemble a list of important digital account information to share with trusted family and friends in case of death. She discusses how accessible digital account information is crucial for those who manage estates after a loved one’s demise. The main steps to achieving the ultimate account list are as follows:
Step 1: Share your account logins and other secure information with a password manager
Step 2: Record and save emergency info
Step 3: Set up dead-man switches and assign custody for your digital accounts
Step 4: Drill practice — teach your loved ones how to survive without you
