What happens to my WhatsApp account if I die?
If we suddenly change our mobile device, it is normal that there is no process to delete the previous account or unlink the phone number that was being used before.
This is because WhatsApp has a very efficient data replacement system. Basically, our data can be saved in the cloud to have a backup in case of losing the mobile.
If you die, you don’t have to worry. Normally, the account enters a state of inactivity and after 120 days the data will be deleted when the phone number is unlinked.

Just remember not to touch the mobile or enter the WhatsApp account of the deceased person. In addition to reporting to the operator to cancel the line.
