Rapidly developing online services are making life much more convenient. But some have gone beyond people's expectations. Recently a website has promised to maintain people's last will and testament. But it has drawn a fierce debate among young people.
Wang Zhuonan is a freshman at college.
He found a new online service: a will.
It cost Wang 29 yuan to open an account. Quite a number of his classmates have also opened accounts which contain many of their secrets.
Wang said, "If I have an accident at any time, the will tells people I want to leave my things to my parents. I've written a diary in it and other things that I don't want to share with others, as well as my e-mail account and password. "
People can put any information into the account once they've paid the fee, including a will, financial information, private diaries and more. The customer can also select one to three contacts. Once the website confirms the death of its customer, it will send the information to the contacts.
More than ten thousand people have applied for accounts. But others still have doubts.
A resident said, "I think we should write it down on paper or tell our family members. I won't do that on the Internet."
"I think it can only be entertainment and a will is of no use online. The Internet is fiction and can't be supported by law. I won't do that."
Are these doubts necessary? Lawyers explain.
Zhang Guoquan, lawyer, said, "The so called online will has no legal force. It's not real testament, but a copy of a hand-written one."
Zhang says if the important private information is stolen by hackers, it would be hard to get compensation from the website. He warns netizens to be cautious about online wills.
