We have often been asked how does social media know when someone has passed? Or, how do you turn Facebook into a memorial page for a loved one? We have included in this blog a step by step video and directions attached at the bottom on how to do just that.

Memorializing the account:
Memorialized accounts are a place for friends and family to gather and share memories after a person has passed away. Memorializing an account also helps keep it secure by preventing anyone from logging into it.
Please keep in mind that we can’t provide login information for someone else’s account even under these circumstances. It’s always against Facebook’s policies to log into another person’s account.
To report a profile to be memorialized, please contact us
Removing the account:
Verified immediate family members may request the removal
of a loved one’s account from Facebook.
