Key, representing the info you should give to your digital executor

If you're like most Internet-savvy people, you have digital footprints all across the Web, from Paypal and Flickr to Amazon, Dropbox, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and video game sites. You probaly also have auto-renewal accounts for sites like Consumer Reports and your local newspaper. So what happens to all of these accounts when you die?

Worst-case scenario: A family member accesses your email account and finds messages that you don't want revealed, including keys to access your online financials for banking and brokerages. If the wrong people gain access, photos that you don't want exposed might go online. Tweets and Facebook posts in your name might appear. The potential for mischief is significant.
