Why organising your digital assets is a good idea – top 4 reasons (Number 2 is my favourite)


There is a place for everything and everything should have a place. Day in and day out we use the Internet and create a digital footprint with every click. This footprint gets so large over time that it becomes difficult to remember various accounts and digital assets we have. Sometimes, we end up loosing important accounts and assets stored in them as we forget about their existence.

Here are a few reasons why it’s a good idea to organise our digital assets and get organised in general.

1.Make your device faster

When you keep your digital assets in a separate storage space, you get more space on your gadgets, computers, laptops etc. Products like DropBox, Google Drive etc. have become common place and accessible from all the devices. These products allow you to delete, save, store and manage your digital assets such as music, e-books, pictures and apps from anywhere. These products can help you create more space on your device and that might make your device faster.

2.Reduce Clutter – Know what you have

These days, it is difficult to keep track of all the accounts we have. Our online identity and digital assets are spread everywhere. With a product like Planned Departure, you can create a stock of your digital life. This allows you to reduce clutter by deactivating or deleting accounts you no longer use. Reduced clutter will make you more productive by giving you more time for things you love.

3. Be in control

When you take a stock of your digital life, you get control of your digital life. You control what emails you get and how many of them you get. You delete the accounts you no longer use and find accounts which are invaluable for you. Product like Planned Departure makes it easy for you to spot accounts which are important for you. It also helps you in creating succession plan for those online accounts.

4. Never loose a thing again

If you have ever lost any important document, you would know the importance of keeping them safe. Your passport, driving license, visa, resident permit and other important documents should be kept safe. These documents should be accessible all the time, from anywhere. These important documents should be stored in digital format on a platform like Planned Departure. This will keep your important documents safe from accidents, theft and fire. This will make these documents safe and accessible all the time.

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.
