Little do some of us realise the magnitude of how the digital world has infiltrated our daily lives. We use it for banking, shopping, education, watching television, sharing our lives on social media, subscriptions, uploading photos to the cloud. But what happens when we are gone?
A “digital will” is the solution. Unlike an official will this where you store login information for the accounts or subscriptions you have signed up with. This will help your loved one or specified executor of your will to access photos and assets, cancel subscriptions and close accounts on your behalf.
The Consumer Advisory Service – Digital Will offers practical advice on how to set up and manage your digital will.
