Digital assets have been around for a long time, but it’s good to know that digital legacy is becoming mainstream as well.
Big organisations like Google and Yahoo have realised the need to talk about digital legacy. Yahoo came up with Yahoo ending and Google launched Google Inactivity Account Manager to handle digital legacy of users on their platform. Even Law society urged people to leave clear instructions on what happens to their digital legacy.
We, at Planned Departure firmly believe that digital legacy is part of our assets and it should be protected. It’s good to see that media is realising importance of digital legacy and playing it’s part in raising awareness. Recently, Planned Departure was featured on ‘The Economic Times’ and they highlighted the importance of thinking about digital legacy and importance of products like Planned Departure.
I would recommend you to read this news story and see how important this issue is. They have highlighted the issue of a young Google/Gmail user who had his parents spend months trying to retrieve his about-to-be-published book, after he died. Also a bitcoin miner with currency worth over Rs 5 lakh is wondering how to manage inheritance after he’s dead.
We realised importance of digital legacy a while back and launched Planned Departure to address this growing problem.
“Planned Departure, a UK-based startup helping users manage their digital remains, is seeing increased activity on the ground. The biggest challenge is that many users tend to think of traditional legal heirs while planning digital afterlife. “Our digital assets are so complex that transferring it to legal heirs is not a right way to solve it,” said Komal Joshi, cofounder of Planned Departure.”
We are working hard to ensure that digital legacy becomes mainstream. We are innovating constantly to ensure that it becomes easier for you to manage your digital life and create digital legacy. Please sign-up today and start protecting your digital legacy.
