Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied

Josh-2010 :

Certainly not. It is a private document with one major caveat...

Josh-2010 :

After your death it become a matter of public record when probate is applied for. So it is quite possible for anyone to read its contents after your death potentially. There is a way around this if privacy is important to you after your death. Would you like me to outline what this is?
