    I'm going with no one. I don't think such things should be given out and I'm not sure I'd trust anyone or anything with them. I mean, do my online profiles really need to stay online? I have dead friends too and some of them have Facebooks.....I don't go to these pages and I've forgotten about these pages for the most part. I wouldn't expect anyone to care for social profile of mine when I'm dead and gone either.

    I have some joint accounts with my wife and she has the passwords to those, but on everything else, I say no one...

    I voted for the last one as well. Your account, if you own it exclusively, may contain some information you NEVER want anyone else to know.

    I think the post by @cblanke quoted below is enough to explain why sharing passwords with your spouse too is not really a feasible idea.
    Not saying all relationships go awry, but why run the risk?

    Like most people I wouldn't give passwords to people without a good reason. To many people who could/would abuse it for profit or just because they are mad at you at some point. Beside that there are people who lack knowledge (which could have keyloggers on there PC, forget to sign out on public computers/networks, etc.) which can cost you the password (or even your account(s) anyway.

    I personally think it's not worth the risk if you are using it for personal stuff.

    My wife has helped me run various business enterprises over the years. Part of her role, at times, has been my office manager/admin in which not only did she have access to my email and calendar but any other password that was needed.

    I didn't share this with anyone because it's secret.

    Passwords are kind of thing which is not shared with anybody, no matter how close he/she will be yours. This is very personal thing for personal use only.

    That would normally take ages at least in my case.:) Still, I recommend you keep your password secret. No matter how much you trust a person, there's always something you would never like to share with others.
    If you ever happen to disclose your password because your partner has fully gained your trust, change it IMMEDIATELY as a security measure.

    Not trusting your family members sounds weird to me... lol. I would share it with them when needed.
