Privacy Settings

When you set a memorial to Private, there are two ways to access the memorial site:

  1. Passcode: A guest must type the passcode to access the memorial. You can email the passcode to family and friends or someone can email you and ask for the passcode.

  2. Ask a Question: Recommended to ask a common knowledge about the person being memorialized. Maybe ask about the person's hometown, career or birthday month?


Background Music Settings

At the bottom of the Privacy Setting is the Background Music Settings. Select from a royalty free music from our list or upload your own music. The site currently only accepts the MP3 format.
