Estate Planning for Digital Assets: an update!


A few weeks ago I published a post on Estate Planning for Digital Assets, and thanks to information provided by my friend and colleague Morgan Bembry, I am happy to share this update:

According to N.Y. Times article Bequeathing the Keys to Your Digital Afterlife, Google has a program called Interactive Account Manager.  This feature allows you to direct that Google deactivate all related accounts after a selected period of ‘silence’.

Also, other programs such as SecureSafe allow you to store username and password information.  In fact, I would expect that these types of apps and programs abound.

Or, as the Times article points out, there’s always your sock drawer. Not that I’d recommend it.
