Digital Document Storage + Organizing Your Digital Life

I was recently contacted by Dustin Lao of Easeenet.com, a digital document storage service as well as password manager. In doing a little bit of research about this company, I found several recommendations from elder care websites that stated Easeenet’s  “legacy contact” function was quite helpful. Even though there might be up to a 30-day wait for a legacy contact to gain access to the account after their loved one passes away, at least all of the deceased family member’s pertinent information and documents are located all in one place. Additionally, the password manager will allow you online access to their accounts so you can take the necessary steps to close accounts like Facebook and Instagram.

I was curious about what other platforms are available, so here are two articles to get you started with your own research about document storage and digital life organization services:

By comparing the various features and security measures of different platforms, you’ll be able to choose the one that best fits your needs and organize your digital life.

This should be a consideration not only if you’re responsible for an elderly parent or sibling. Nowadays with so many online accounts, it’s helpful at any age to have a legacy contact to deal with these responsibilities in the event of your death or incapacitation.

I realize this can be a bit morbid to think about, but what a gift you’ll be giving to loved ones if they can have a few less worries when you pass on and instead be able to fully grieve and celebrate your life.
