Setting Up Google Trustees

If you are like most people, you likely have a ton of info stored on many of Google's popular services, whether it’s your e-mail, contacts, pictures, or music.

If you are a regular Google user, have you ever worried about what would happen to all your personal files and information if suddenly you were to pass away?

It isn't the most pleasent thing to think about, but we should really all be thinking about our critical digital assets in this way.

Google has created an option that allows you to assign a 'trustee' to your accounts which can only access your information if you don’t log-in for an extended period of time.

You get to choose the inactivity interval which can be between 3 to 18 months which will automatically send trustees an access notification.

You can setup up to ten trustees and choose what information that they can access and by which trustee, so certain things can go to certain people.

It only takes a minute or to get it setup and it could really come in handy should anything unforseen ever happen.
