We have all amassed tonnes of data in our email, social network and online storage accounts, and our ability to decide what happens to all of it once we die has always been in doubt. Writing passwords down for someone else to find is clearly not a good idea, and there's always been the danger of important information being lost for good.

You can choose an inactivity period between 3 and 12 months, after which your preferred course of action will take place.
