Next in our list to cover is Dropbox. If you have documents or pictures stored in a Dropbox account then is a good idea to know what will happen to your account if you are no longer around.

Will your family get access?

You can make it easy by granting access to loved ones. Otherwise, they’ll need a court order. Your loved ones need to request access and provide documentation that:

– The person is in fact deceased
– They have a legal right to access the person’s files

According to Dropbox they need to send the following information to us by mail:

– The full name of the deceased person
– The email address associated with that person’s Dropbox account
– Your name, mailing address, email address, and your relationship to the deceased person
– A photocopy of your government-issued ID
– A valid court order establishing that it was the deceased person’s intent that you have access to the files in their account after the person passed away, and that Dropbox is compelled by law to provide the deceased person’s files to you
