Digital Asset Information: What can Executors Do When Usernames and Passwords Die With the Testator?


The average person has roughly 26 different digital accounts that can only be accessed electronically with a username and a password. These accounts provide access to everything from shopping to banking to social media to e‑mail to airline miles and other loyalty programs, some of which have real economic value. At death or disability, it may be difficult or impossible for a fiduciary to access digitally stored information that will be needed to settle the estate. Further, attempts by fiduciaries to gain access to critical digital asset information are fraught with legal and ethical landmines.
