Google Updates Page Regarding a Deceased User’s Account

It looks like Google recently updated the support page in which a person can request information regarding a deceased user’s account. Now the options are:

Close the Account of a deceased user

Submit a request for funds from a deceased user’s account

Obtain data from a deceased user’s account

Notify Google that a user is deceasedSubmit_a_request_regarding_a_deceased_user_s_account_-_Accounts_Help

Resolve a potential hijacking of a deceased user’s account

Make plans for what should happen to my own account.

This is a good step in the right direction to allow fiduciaries, including personal representatives and trustees, along with family members, to access the information in a deceased user’s account.

I’m a bit surprised, but encouraged.
