Estate & Probate for Digital Assets

Old People with Younger Woman Looking at Computer

In today's digital age, it's important to consider digital assets in your estate planning. Digital assets include everything from social media accounts to cryptocurrencies, and failing to plan for them can lead to complications and even loss of assets. Here are some tips on how to protect your digital assets in estate planning:

1. Take Inventory of Your Digital Assets

Start by making a list of all your digital assets, including login information and passwords. This will help your executor access and manage your accounts after you pass away.

2. Include Digital Assets in Your Estate Plan

Your estate plan should include provisions for your digital assets, such as who will have access to them and how they should be managed. You may also want to consider appointing a digital executor who can handle your digital assets separately from your traditional assets.

3. Keep Your Estate Plan Up-to-Date 

As your digital assets change, make sure to update your estate plan accordingly. This includes adding new accounts and removing old ones.

4. Use Two-Factor Authentication 

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your accounts by requiring a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your phone. This can help prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.

5. Consider a Digital Asset Protection Service 

There are companies that specialize in protecting digital assets in estate planning. These services can help ensure that your digital assets are managed and distributed according to your wishes.
