John provides a necessary reminder when talking about your digital executor. I’ve watched this play out with parents, and let’s face it, that the older generation doesn’t have near as much digital “stuff” as the younger ones do.
“The terms of service will govern what you can and can’t do with the information captured/stored. Some services have specifically established credentials or a process for accessing your information. Even if there isn’t a way to define “secondary” access, you should document your credentials for your digital executor. A password manager is a great way to keep everything in one place. Just make sure you have a secure way to relay your master password to your executor.”
As we head into the metaverse, or whatever the cool kids are calling it this week, this is only going to become more complex and more necessary. It won’t just be a social media profile and photos, it’ll be an entire identity in the crypto-blockchain space that will not be accessible to someone else without the appropriate transfer. Don’t leave it to chance. Your family is going to be dealing with enough.
