Inactivity Account Manager – Good but not enough..

Finally, google has understood the importance of transferring digital identities and accounts – it’s a good move by Google. Well Done! I hope other companies will start following the trend now.

Services like this are a step in the right direction, however it’s impact on our digital life is not massive, because our lives are scattered all over the cyber ether. We use many online services and products besides owned by Google.

If I reflect on my online activities, Google is a small part of that. I am present in

  • Social networks

  • Professional networks

  • Blogging communities

I share my thoughts and pictures on blogs and micro blogging platforms. I purchase online and have e-wallet on many websites. I have virtual goods and virtual money which can be converted into physical money easily.  I trade online and have online trading and banking accounts.

Google is big, important and touches many parts of our lives – However it is not the only thing of our digital life. PlannedDeparture solves this problem for your *digital assets* – not just the assets owned by Google.

Living and working in this digital era, our social media accounts – from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr to the likes of Pinterest – are increasing not only in number but also in volume. Additionally, many of us have domain names registered and libraries of movies, digital music and e-Books that can be of significant value. And let's not forget about Bitcoin and other virtual currencies! For the majority of us, these accounts and digital assets are likely to outlive us. And when we die, it is left up to family members and estate executors to sift through them all. Furthermore, even though they may have all the required passwords necessary for these accounts, many heirs will discover that they have no clear authority to access, or even to manage, the online accounts of their deceased loved ones. With the value of individuals' digital assets globally measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, planning for the protection of our digital assets has moved to centre stage. It is essential that our online and social media accounts are included as part of the estate planning process. Failure to do so may not only deprive those we leave behind of fond memories and (possibly) a little nest egg, it could also leave us vulnerable to postmortem identity theft if fraudsters get to use our personal details to apply for credit facilities whilst our accounts remain unguarded. Planned Departure resolves these issues. We provide you with the ability not only to protect your digital assets, but also to clearly indicate who can access your online accounts and who should benefit from them. Create piece of mind today by registering with us in one quick and easy process.
