Making a Will What About Privacy

Recommended Posts

This is probably going sound like a stupid question but when making a will never done one but should, how do you go about with all the private sensitive stuff like logins where the safe is hidden or them gold coins buried at XYZ not that any of that is true but them kind of things

 

Please tell me everything is not just there on a file or bit of paper, what is a good way of doing this

For login's use a password manager, usually there's a function on there were a spouse/family member can gain access after a specified amount of time.

If you need to write a gps location or crypto key split up the characters and store in different in locations. Lots of ways to get creative with that. There's also videos online as for securing keys and making them fire/damage proof etc.

Sealed document held at solicitors.

[often no need for passwords etc as banks etc will respond to the probate process, but you should have details of what stuff exists, if it isn't obvious.]

[re crypto -- another reason why raw crypto is too complex for actual use in the real world.]

Disagree on both fronts.

Speaking from experiance, the passwords. It's not just financial instituions, who have plenty of experiance dealing with death. Having access to logins for all kinds of websites and services makes life hell of a lot easier.  Things can be dealt with approatiately and swiftly at a time of difficult hardship. Don't have to search far to see some of the horror stories with the likes of trying to deal with the corporates.

Crypto - People have the option to take ownership, up to them at the lengths they go to protect. Writing out keys and taking protective measusers isn't for everybody. Just like burying gold in the woods isn't either.
