Your Messenger account, a hub of personal conversations, shared photos, and memorable interactions, forms a significant part of your digital communication. This popular messaging platform has changed the way we connect with others, but have you ever wondered what happens to your Messenger account when you die?

Digital platforms, like Messenger, play a crucial role in our lives, shaping how we communicate and share memories. When it comes to posthumous account management, Messenger, being a part of Facebook, follows Facebook’s policies: Memorialization or Account Deletion.


Facebook’s Memorialization feature allows your Messenger conversations to be preserved after your account is memorialized. Friends can still see your messages, but no one can log in to your account, ensuring your private conversations remain private.

Account Deletion

If you prefer not to leave a digital footprint, you can choose to have your Messenger and Facebook account permanently deleted after your death. This option ensures that your information is erased from Facebook's servers, leaving no trace of your account.

These options allow you to manage your Messenger legacy, but they require planning and communication with your loved ones. This is where Snug comes in.
