Assign Someone To Manage Your Facebook Account When You Die

For a number of months now, Facebook users in the US have been able to nominate someone to manage their Facebook account after they have passed away. This person is known as your ‘Legacy Contact.’

Facebook users in the UK will be able to access this feature from today (Monday, 27th July 2015)

To nominate your legacy contact, go to the top right hand corner of the webpage, select the drop down menu, click settings, ‘Security’ and then ‘Legacy Contact’.

You can also request that Facebook permanently deletes your account after you die.

Once activated, this person can write a post at the top of your timeline — for instance, to share details about a memorial service — respond to friend requests and update profile and cover photos.

Users can also give legacy accounts permission to download an archive of their profile, including photos and posts, for safe keeping should they wish for their account to be deleted.
