Access To Passwords

When a family member or business associate dies, or loses their memory, how is the process of gaining access to important accounts handled? This thought arose when talking to my mom about the importance of keeping access to her e-mail once she's unable to, and she said their passwords are automatically supplied. It could just as easily apply to many other scenarios. Is it a matter of giving proof to an attorney that you have leave to do so?

Hmm. Here you can stumble at many different issues. But the mail passwords never come automatically. When you open a new account in Hotmail or Gmail you have to provide your password by yourself. Using mail from your internetprovider is different. You need to setup the mail with changing the mail-account password by yourself. (again) But tos send messages out, you need to follow the providers instructions as noted in a letter or initial mail-message.
Once you have control and sight at her mail, you can also control all passwords that she eventually uses in Facebook ect. ect.

You can get something like Lastpass. one password to control/contain all your passwords. Then she only needs to leave that one password with the lawyers.
