Without Legapassno access to the account

Indeed, Yahoo's terms and conditions do state that neither the account nor its content can be transferred in the event of death, unless you are a German user or are able to present an Irish court order making a request for disclosure of content.

A process has been established by Yahoo to close the account and delete its content.

We indicate below how to delete without account access.

Comment faire supprimer un compte Yahoo ?

In the event of a death, you can request that your loved one's Yahoo account be deleted.

To do this, you must complete a form on Yahoo support and provide them with :

  • the death certificate of the deceased
  • identification of the closing applicant
  • a letter explaining the request containing the Yahoo ID of the loved one
  • a document attesting to the applicant's legitimacy as executor or personal representative of the deceased

En tant que prévoyant Legapass est un service qui me paraît nécessaire aujourd’hui avec tous les accès numériques que nous possédons : compte sur les réseaux sociaux, gestionnaire de mot de passe, accès cloud… Manque plus que la gestion de patrimoine non numérique 😁

Je cherchais depuis quelques temps un service de sauvegarde des données afin que mes enfants puissent les récupérés en cas d’imprévu et je vous ai connu grâce à une pub sur nice matin. Je trouve la facilité d’utilisation en plus. Bravo a vous et en plus c’est nissart 😁.
