PassMyWill Sends Out Your Passwords After You Die

After we die, our social networking profiles, bank accounts and email passwords are lost to anyone who might need them. If you want to ensure your digital identity is destroyed or passed on appropriately, PassMyWill will send out emails with your passwords.

PassMyWill is a free service that will check in with Facebook and Twitter to see if you’re alive and posting updates, if you don’t appear to be active, it will send you an email to confirm your death, then it sends out emails to everyone on your list if you don’t respond. You can include whatever passwords you like, whether it’s email, Facebook or anything else. It’s not just willfully giving out passwords though, recipients will need a key to unlock them, which you’ll have to give to them before you pass on.

Note from Ryan: We have posted many articles about what happens to your online identity when you die. Is there an opportunity here for funeral homes to partner with a company like this to offer these services to families during the pre-planning process? Please share your thoughts.
