Digital Death, My Data, Digital Estate Planning

Thinking about death can elicit many thoughts, feelings and questions such as:

  • What happens to us after we pass?
  • How will my last few days play out?
  • How can I ensure my passing is as painless as possible for my family?

While these questions will always hold true, we now have to consider our digital lives as well. As we rely more and more on digital devices in our everyday lives, it makes sense to think and plan for what happens to our devices and digital information when we move on.

So, What Happens to My Data When I Die?

If you're ready to make a digital estate plan, we're here to help.

Get protected with Final Security.

Take a moment to think about what you have on your devices and online. Do you have sensitive information, intellectual property, or items you do not want others to see? When estate planning, you now need to account for your digital life.

Final Security's services provide you with the tools you need to properly plan your estate and control your digital information and assets upon your digital death.

Info Vault

Final Security's Info Vault is a place where you can store your digital information:

  • Store your usernames and passwords to any service (you can also store files and notes with each entry).
  • Store your photos: save a single, memorable photo or a collection you'd like to pass on.
  • Store your documents, such as a will, or a collection of information your beneficiaries will need.

Your Info Vault creates an efficient, organized and central place for your beneficiary to find all your important information after your passing.

Device Cleaning

With Final Security's Device Cleaning service, you can have that peace of mind that your registered devices will be remotely wiped upon the confirmation of your passing. Our service will ensure that your sensitive and private information will not be seen by anyone but you. We will protect not only your legacy, but provide protection to your family and friends by making sure your private information does not get into the wrong hands.

Social Media Cleaning

Social Clean is Final Security's service that allows you to know that your online accounts do not live on the web forever. Not only does this service protect your legacy and information, it also protects your family and friends. Bad actors are looking to capitalize on the window of time where your death may not be publicly known or officially recognized. In this window of time, your family and friends could fall victim to a scam that looks like it is coming from your account.
