Create a Digital Estate Plan: This provides clear, specific statements of intent about who will gain access to what information, and covers all your digital accounts and assets, past, present and future. You can and should include this in your will, but you can also take the simple step of giving the login information to your password manager and/or digital password vault to a “trustee” such as a spouse, sibling or attorney. SecureSafe issues a “data inheritance” letter that you can give to the trustee explaining how to access your digital assets with a special code.

Be Choosy About Your Trustees: You may not want to give access to everything to each trustee. For example, you can have one person manage less-sensitive assets such as social media, online shopping and subscription assets, and another manage your financial accounts.
