Do You Need A Digital Will

Do you need a digital will? Probably. Like a traditional last will & testament that deals with real and personal property, a digital Will concerns itself with your digital assets. A digital will directs a representative(s) of your choice to deal with your digital assets when you die. What are digital assets? Digital assets range from cloud storage to online bank accounts. Social media accounts and contact lists also fall into the digital asset category. These are just a few digital assets that need attention upon your death.

Any online content may be considered a digital asset. There are a large number of accounts that qualify. Here is a brief list.

  • Social Media Accounts (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • Cloud Storage services (Dropbox, Amazon Photo, Google Photo, etc.)
  • Streaming Subscriptions (Netflix, ESPN+, Hulu, etc.)
    Online Bank accounts
  • Digital currency accounts
  • Email accounts
  • Forum, Gaming, and Blog accounts
  • Online Commerce Accounts (Amazon, Wal-Mart, Etsy, eBay, etc.)
  • Document Accounts (Google docs, ZOHO, etc.)
  • Online Payment services (PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, etc.)
  • Credit Bureau Accounts

    As you can see, digital content can grow in the same way personal assets do. Many spouses believe their husband or wife will care for these accounts when they are gone. Many state laws and online platform terms of service agreements do not allow a spouse to log in and alter an account without specific permission. A digital will provides the necessary permission in most cases.

    The average American has 66 online accounts. You can designate different representatives or executors for specific content. You might name a friend or family member you often game with to deal with a gaming account. You can name your spouse to execute more personal or financial wishes. The choice is yours.

    If you don't care if your representative sees every detail of your online life, then using a password manager like RoboForm or Dashlane may be appropriate. Your digital will could then pass on your master password, providing your representative access to all of your accounts.

    Companies like GoodTrust  and DigitalWill  offer services that address the problem, but action is required, not unlike a traditional will. Your attorney may be the best place to start, but not all attorneys are familiar with digital Wills. Find out more in this month's blog post, Inheriting the Internet.

Happy New Year

Smile  Just For Grins  Smile
  • My life is just a series of awkward and humiliating moments separated by snacks.
  • It's a beautiful day, I think I'll skip my meds and stir things up a bit.
  • Not to brag or anything, but I got the high score on my scale again today.
  • I'm on my second guardian angel. My first one quit and is now in therapy.
  • I need to teach my facial expressions how to use my inside voice.
  • Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance... the five stage of waking up.
  • I am staying home today. I have mood poisoning.
  • Sleeping in could easily be my superpower. If not for my arch-nemesis, having to pee.
  • Sometimes I just want someone to hug me and say, "I know it's hard. You're going to be okay. Here is chocolate and 6 million dollars.
Monthly Tip

Auto Recycle Bin

Auto Recycle Bin is a free program that automates cleaning your recycle bin. The recycle bin will be monitored and deleted based on your preferences. The program can delete files on OS shut down or based on size, extension, and other options. You can set the program to delete files when free space on your drive is limited. Cleaning may occur when the recycle bin reaches a specific size or at date intervals.

Of course, you can clean the recycle bin manually, but where is the fun in that? You can set a maximum size for the recycle bin or determine a set number of days to keep items.

Set up different preferences for each drive on your PC if desired. The program has been retired but is still being updated.
