CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A local woman realized the difficulty of removing her late husband’s online accounts after he died.
Dariusz Swierzewski and his wife, Kasia, were married for 17 years.
"He had such a warm personality, very smart," Kasia said.
He was in his late 30s when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
"Eventually his body just gave in," Swierzewski told Action 9. "He was 44 -- 44 when he passed."
After he died, she found multiple online accounts that belonged to him, including Facebook, email accounts, Netflix and LinkedIn.
Swierzewski did not know any of his log-in information, so she had to contact each company, which turned into a hassle.
Eventually, she gained access and was able to close her husband’s accounts.
She learned a lesson and shared her username and passwords with her brother, in case something happened to her.
In case of an emergency, let someone know where to find all of your online account information.
