Share Online Account Login Information With Loved Ones

Money Tip: Give Out Your Passwords

If something terrible happened to you, would your loved ones have to jump through hoops to access your various online accounts? Mine would. I hadn't considered coming up with an online estate plan until a Wall Street Journal article suggested it.

The article recommends a few solutions for making sure your login information is kept safe but is also accessible should you get into trouble, an accident, or worse. The suggestions include giving a lawyer or trusted relative all the information; dividing up different accounts to different people; or storing the information in a safety-deposit box or home safe.

Do you have an online estate plan? How would you go about ensuring your usernames and passwords are safe but accessible?
