PHOENIX - A lot of us have wills or living trusts.

It's the easiest way to make sure your loved ones get what they should when you pass away.

But who gets access to what you have stored online?

What happens to your photos, videos, documents and accounts?

Data Doctors Ken Colburn says make a list of your accounts, usernames and passwords.

Name a trustee, listing instructions and how to access information.

You can name a Facebook legacy consultant and leave instructions about what should happen to your page.

With Google accounts, you can set a number of months.

If your account is inactive for that time, it will send a message to a trustee about what to do.
