This is how you cancel a Myspace account when someone dies
Myspace is an early social networking site made famous by its company’s front facing person, Tom. Myspace doesn't have a clear policy around deceased users, and doesn't have a legacy function, but Atticus has solutions to both of those problems.
How to close a Myspace account
- Log into the account you want to delete
- Choose the “Settings” tab
- Click on “Delete Account”
- Submit a reason for cancellation
- Choose “Delete Account”
How do I create a legacy account?
Myspace doesn't have a memorial setting for the deceased, but you can create a group page to honor that person. This page can then be linked to the deceased person's MySpace profile.
What if I don't have the required information?
If you don't have required information you'll need to contact Myspace at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be ready with the following information:
- Copy of Death Certificate or obituary
- Your relationship to the deceased
- Documentation attesting to your role in estate settlement
- Deceased’s MySpace friend ID (which can be found by clicking on the profile and copying the string of numbers or letters at the end of the URL)

Atticus' Legacy Review of MySpace closing account process after someone dies = 5/10 stars
Myspace gets okay marks for Atticus' Legacy Review of their closing account process after someone dies, as they do have a process to contact them in the event you don't have required login information. However, we had to dig to find that, and their policy isn't addressed in their Terms of Service. There are also no web resources available. They also don't have a legacy feature, but with some clever use, it's still possible. Hopefully, after receiving this less than perfect mark they'll write one for their clients.
