How To Delete A Loved One's About.me Account

Mar-15 2022

Delete your loved one’s About.me account  

Taking control of a loved one’s online accounts can be a major decision. But if you're ready to move forward then simply follow the guidelines below. It could be to shut down the account entirely, or you might want to memorialize it or extract content first.

If you're doing it for your own account then of course log in ahead of time. But if you're doing it for someone else - maybe they've passed away or become incapacitated - then you might need to tackle it without a login or password.

Remember: GoodTrust can help you take any of these actions and save you the time, stress and hassle. Check out our Digital Executor feature to learn more.
