How to Save Your Digital Assets When You Die

Inevitably, we’re not going to be here at some point in time. Death comes to us all. In knowing our own mortality, we can enjoy life while we’re here. What happens to your online self when you pass on, though? I’ve had to deal with online friends who have passed away. Not only is it very upsetting emotionally – it also can be confusing. You still have them as contacts on all of your social sites. You know you should delete them – but you just can’t make yourself. So what should you do to help make this situation easier? What happens to “you” when you pass away?

There’s a service that a friend of mine has created that can help you handle all of this. Legacy Locker is a safe, secure repository for your digital property that lets you grant access to online assets for friends and loved ones in the event of death or disability.

Sign up for an account. This will then become the place that when you’re no longer around, your loved ones (whom you choose) can gain access to your accounts everywhere. They can then take control of your online life… either removing or archiving your content. They can carry out whatever wishes you have about the online content and life you have created.

I want to make sure everything is taken care of the way I want it when I pass on. I have created an account with Legacy Locker, and I have given access to two people that I trust completely to carry out those wishes.

If you click the sign up button, you’ll be taken to the pricing page. You can get a free account that allows you to give access to one person, and store only three assets. We all have a lot more than three! You can choose to pay a yearly subscription at about $30.00. Or… you can choose to pay a one-time fee of $299.00 – and have this service for life. Think about it… do the math… that’s a good deal.

It’s even better if you sign up and use coupon code chrispirillo. In that case, you’ll save $50.00!! That’s one heck of a deal.

If you haven’t taken a look at this yet, I really think that you should. You never know what can or will happen tomorrow.
