An Internet enterprise customer service said: At present, the account does not support inheritance for the time being. If there is funds in the account, it is necessary to provide the ID card of the first heir, the relationship between the first heir and the account holder, and the death certificate of the account holder to process the amount in the account.


Dong Qi, a lawyer at Shandong Chenggong Law Firm, said that social network accounts are private because of their personal nature. They belong to the privacy of users and cannot be inherited. A well-known ID Weibo account or online store has a higher value. At present, the law has not clearly stated whether it has special attributes. It is only defined according to the service contract, and cannot be directly disposed or inherited as a legacy.

Qu Tianming, an associate professor at Qingdao University of Science and Technology, believes that although network property has its property rights to a certain extent, unlike ordinary goods, these network assets are usually associated with online accounts and are inseparable from the user's interpersonal relationship. Inheritance may infringe on the privacy of individuals. Therefore, she believes that the inheritance of online heritage should respect the rights of the right holders. If the relatives do not have arrangements, the social platform has no power, and there is no obligation to directly give a large amount of private information in the account to his legal heirs. a kind of respect.

The inheritance of network assets will take time. Industry insiders suggest that in the current situation, users can write their personal social network accounts and passwords into their wills to protect their personal interests.

I heard that my social account can't be inherited, and netizens are frying. Directly calling "the king's glory that 5 yuan is a white charge" "7-digit qq seems to be no success." There are even people worried about what to do after the death, what do you think?
