Account Your options CAKE Death Policy Rating (out of 5 stars)
Google/YouTube You should set up what you would want to happen to your account when you’re gone here.

If you or a loved one have not done this, Google will require you to fill out a form here.

★★★
Facebook You should set up a legacy contact on Facebook to determine whether you would want your account deleted or memorialized after you’re gone.  Legacy contacts have limited capabilities around managing your account.

If you or a loved one have not done this, Facebook will evaluate “valid requests” to memorialize an account.

Removal of an account upon death is more complicated.
