  • Published:

Have you ever thought about what would happen to your dgiital personality when you finally pass away? Services like OnceIveGone.com have triedto help with that. However, Facebook may just have the answers you've been waiting for.

The social network is rolling plans that will soon allow you to nominate someone to manage your profile when you’re gone.

This Legacy Contact will not have full access to your profile but will be able to add a pinned post with a final message or notification about a memorial service, update your profile picture, and download your shared posts.

To assign a Legacy Contact, just locate the “Security” tab in the Settings page. For profile that were unable to add Legacy Contacts before their death, verified family members of the deceased users can request that Facebook memorializes the account. That adds the word ‘remembering’ next to the person’s name, removes ads from the profile and prevents references to it popping up on the timeline.

The new feature is rolling out in the US now, and should likely become available
