Abstract: What happens to the large volume of information on social media and other Internet platforms after our death? Even while alive it is extremely difficult for anyone to control the storage and dissemination of personal data on the Internet. How and why should we therefore try to make arrangements regarding what happens to this data when we pass away? Our next of kin do not usually know much about our various online activities, nor do they have access to the passwords necessary to deactivate profiles and delete or move information. At the same time, platform providers follow different practices, and their terms and conditions vary considerably. This paper summarizes the results of an interdisciplinary research project1 aimed at clarifying the many open questions there are in connection with this topic and proposes an extended perspective on how the many facets of this subject might be approached.
