There are only a two reasons I consider giving out your password a good idea. You need your trusted IT person to fix something or you’re dead. The first reason is only if you can’t reset that password a head of time and/or plan to change it soon. I’ve left a few clues to my password spread across people that are most likely to come together if/when I die. That way my accounts can be access and (hopefully) the more embarrassing things wiped e.g., browser history. – When to Give Your Girlfriend Your Password. via Lifehacker.
