Why would I use a digital vault?

You would use a digital vault for the same reasons you use other means to keep something safe; to protect your important items. With a digital vault, you are protecting your digital assets both for yourself now, and for your loved ones after you've died.

Using a digital vault to protect your important files, photos and other digital assets for you now

At the heart of a digital vault is a secure means of cloud storage. With cloud storage, you're uploading your files to a remote, secure server where your files are now in multiple places. It is standard practice for cloud storage services to employ many different levels of backup. By uploading your files to a digital vault, you will be protecting your files from many different risks including:

  • Computer/device crashes and failures
  • Lost or stolen computer/device
  • Lost or deleted files
  • Disasters: Fires, floods, other natural disasters
  • Cybercrimes: hacking, malware, ransomware, and more
  • Other forms of digital and physical theft

According to AARP, it can take six months for financial institutions, credit-reporting bureaus and the Social Security Administration to receive, share or register death records. When you consider that timeframe and that cybercrime is now more profitable than the global illegal drug trade, your digital estate is the perfect target for criminals. We need to protect and organize our digital lives in preparation of our digital death.
