What is a digital legacy contact?

The concept of a digital estate is still a new idea to most. Technology has integrated itself into almost all aspects of our lives, and this is making our digital footprint grow exponentially on a daily basis. When we pass, our digital lives: logins, files, photos and much more do not just disappear once we are gone. We need to be intentional with how we handle our digital lives, so our family, assets and legacy are protected and accounted for.

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.
