Here at LivingTrustify our goal is for every American to have an estate plan so their loved ones avoid probate court upon their death. But you also need to take steps to protect access to your digital life.
Apple has a way for you to declare a right to survivorship. Without this set up, it is impossible to unlock a phone or access iCloud without knowing the passcode. Now you can set up to five Legacy Contacts within your iPhone settings. Upon your death, these contacts can access your photos, documents and purchases.
There are still steps to access your information when you die, but this has simplified the process for sure. You can read more about the how-to to make sure this key step is in order.
And it turns out, Google and Facebook have a process set up too. So take a minute today and set these up to make life easier for those you leave behind.
