Passwords After You Pass On

If you are involved in even a small amount of web activity, you will have some usernames and passwords that you need to keep track of. So, if you were to pass on, can your spouse or partner still access your online checking account, for example? How will they know that information - have you thought about it? You could put it in your will, I suppose - but how many of us (even baby boomers) actually have one, and keep it current? Personally, I have a Password safe (a software utility), and a couple of close relatives know the master password to it. PCMagazine has an article on this whole topic here, and I have a short video on how to use KeePass (a password safe) here, if you want to go that route.
