Digital Assets and Estate Planning

As a follow-up to our email discussion of including digital assets in your estate planning, there are several websites and services designed to address these issues.

As a follow-up to our email discussion of including digital assets in your estate planning, there are several websites and services designed to address these issues. These sites use either a “dead-man switch” function in which a non-response to regular email reminders triggers the forwarding of password to your heirs; or a “notification” function in your Will or emergency document directing your heirs how to find your passwords. Some of the current options are:

Dead Man’s Switch (www.deadmanswitch.com)
A simple posthumous email service where you create messages to be sent after your death.  Failure to log in after their periodic reminders will release the messages.

Death Switch(deathswitch.com).
Another simple posthumous email service which also sends your messages after the service stops hearing from you on a periodic basis.

Dashlane 3(lp.dashlane.com).
This is a full function password manager that includes an Emergency Feature to make sure your family or friends can access your important data in an emergency or upon your death.
