Account of deceased person having no successor listed

I’m wondering if there are policy provisions for the transfer of accounts where the original account owner has died and no successors were specified prior to their death.

  • Could a family member request access?
  • Could someone with legal power-of-attorney request access?

Hi @malclear,

We actually have a Deceased User Policy that I think answers your questions here:

https://docs.github.com/github/site-policy/github-deceased-user-policy

Hope that helps!
