as well as leaving personal letters of wishes for family or friends.
Your username and password details will remain confidential to you but you will be given a unique
access code which you can give to your executors to ensure they know how to find out exactly what

It is extremely important that you choose a secure password for your account. We recommend using at least one number and one capital letter in your password.
