When you die…

Not that I’d care so much once I die, but it seems to be people being able to dig into my Gmail account is somewhat disturbing to think about.

I feel Facebook is taking most progressive approach to it.

I think most problematic ones are ones incur charges. When my father died, he left the Google AdWord account open, and I had to send in his death certificate to cancel it. Same goes for his T-mobile account. They both had clear protocol about what to do when it happens. (like T-mobile did not charge early termination fee (ETF) for it.

These days, dying “clean” seems to be hard thing to do…
