“I think you’re going to start seeing more of these tools coming online,” said Carl Szabo, senior policy counsel at NetChoice, who noted that many of these services are so new and so young, that they weren’t previously thinking about end-of-life issues.
“You can’t just say: ‘Give me John Smith’s email,’” says Szabo. But, “if you make an express statement in your will to turn over everything to your significant other, and the service provider has the evidence to make sure that’s the right account, they will disclose the content,” he says.
