Legacy Locker – Safe Deposit Box
If you’re reading this blog post then most probably you have a digital life with a lot of digital assets. Now, what happens to your digital assets when you die?
Legacy Locker is an online safety deposit box that lets you grant access to your online accounts for friends and family in the event of your death. It’s like a digital will for your online identities.
Legacy Locker is very simple to use and easy to setup. Once you setup your account you can add your digital assets – Hotmail, Gmail, Flickr, Facebook, PayPal, Yahoo! Mail, eBay, iTunes, Amazon, WordPress, GoDaddy, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mint, and anything that requires an account.
If you sign up for the paid plan then you can designate different beneficiary for different accounts. Otherwise you can add only one beneficiary.
You can even prepare a Legacy Letter and it will be delivered to your beneficiary after your death.
Wait, how do they know when we die? Here is a quote from Legacy Locker FAQ.
How do you know when I die?
Someone will have to report your name to our system as being deceased. As part of your paid account, you will receive a card directing any medical personnel or family members to contact Legacy Locker and “Report a Death.” We have a system of checks in place, including sending out emails to you, contacting your verifiers (A verifier is someone that we can contact to confirm the fact that you’ve died or become incapacitated. This should be a trusted person who can confirm your status (spouse, sibling, child, attorney, etc.), and has access to important information and documentation (like your social security number and access to a death certificate.) In the event that someone submits your name as recently deceased, we will contact all of your listed verifiers to confirm that your assets should be released.) and only proceeding once we have physical proof of your death in the form of a death certificate or medical examiner’s (ME) report.
