Legacy Contacts

If you're a legacy contact, you can manage a memorialized account and will have the option to do things like:
  • Write a pinned post for the memorialized profile (ex: to share a final message on behalf of your deceased loved one or provide information about a memorial service)
  • Respond to new friend requests (ex: old friends or family members who weren't yet on Facebook)
  • Update the profile picture and cover photo
Legacy contacts can't:
  • Log into the memorialized account
  • Remove or change past posts, photos and other things shared on the Timeline
  • Read messages sent to other friends
  • Remove any friends
If you're not a legacy contact, you can submit a request to memorialize or remove a deceased loved one's account.
