We’re talking about data with all the feels - the sentimental stuff like videos, images, and voice notes. That final message sent, or file read. Puff, gone - inaccessible to your nearest and dearest, forever.
Then there’s the dull stuff - legal files, client work, financials, business data - things that remain critically important to those still in the land of the living.
And let’s not forget the access to your social accounts - with an entire LIFE worth of memories and many connections.
Our tech remembers our complex passwords for us. Keeping everything safe and secure. A little too secure, actually. Because once you’ve passed over, your data becomes inaccessible. Forever.
So, what next for your family and friends?
Think that they can just contact Apple, Google or Microsoft? Yeah, good luck with that. Not even the FBI could convince Apple to help them crack a suspected terrorist’s phone.
EVERYONE stores vital data on their devices. But few share their logins in an act of preparation for unexpectedly falling off the face of the earth.
But, being pragmatic and always prepared, maybe YOU do. Maybe you’ve already shared your passes with someone you’d trust with your life. We’re sorry to say, but you could have a problem... or three:
1. Your trusty confidante could lose your passwords.
2. Their tech could get stolen... along with your passwords. Queue a huge headache (and perhaps financial loss) in this life.
3. You both get hit by truck, and die hand in hand.
Four steps. Data that lives forever. Here we go...
Things you may consider leaving:
This all happens on your device.
Your data is not sent anywhere.
You could even keep 1 yourself for additional security, but be sure to leave it accessible by printing it out and entering it's location into the app.
