Secure Digital Vaults

People these days have complex assets – bank accounts, life insurances, retirement plans, company stocks, stock options, RSUs, to name a few.

In addition to these assets, many of which are digital, people have more and more documents that need to be stored, accessed, and organized – passports, health records, copies of policies, passwords, digital keys, etc.

Secure digital vaults were created to serve that specific need – to store and organize confidential information about assets and documents. In addition to storing, these vaults have the inherent capability of making the information accessible from anywhere, as they are online. You can get a copy of your passport during your business trip, details about your health insurance while you are on vacation, or information about your bank account keys.

To fulfil that need, digital vaults have a few very distinctive characteristics:

The concept of digital assets is broad and perhaps confusing to some. Put simply, these assets range from electronic records and data stored online to virtual currencies.

It’s not possible to compile a comprehensive list here, but these are the most important digital assets that you should consider:

they have a very high level of security – this is required because of the sensitive and confidential data stored in them;
they are online- the primary goal of the vaults is to be accessible from anywhere;
their access is strictly restricted to the owners.

While they are accessible from anywhere, access to them is granted solely to the owners.

Digital vaults are very similar to banks: they store confidential information, they are very secure, and access to them is granted to the owners but is almost impossible to be granted to other people, including family members.

Types of vaults

While most secure digital vaults serve similar purposes, there are some slight differences between some of them.

The majority of these vaults aim to store records of confidential information, such as copies of important documents. These types of vaults offer additional features, for example easier organization of the records through their classification into categories.

Another evolutionary direction of digital vaults is as password managers. These vaults are designed to serve a niche need of storing passwords for various digital and non-digital applications such as email accounts, social profiles, and bank accounts.

These types of vaults often offer additional features such as automatic integration with external systems, which enables the owner of the vault account to automatically supply the password to external systems through the vault, instead of remembering or obtaining manually the individual passwords for each of the external systems.

Where secure vaults fall short

How does DGLegacy provide digital inheritance?

DGLegacy aims to fill that gap and fulfil the goal of digital inheritance in several ways, which are very distinctive from how secure vaults function.

Then are digital vaults dead?

Absolutely not. In the modern digital world, they will play an even bigger role. But this role is not related to digital inheritance. It is rather related to secure storage of confidential information, primarily available to the owner of the vault. Their purpose is to help the busy individual organize their life, by providing easy and secure access to their digital records such as bank accounts, passwords, health records, and passports.

On the other hand, the purpose of DGLegacy is to provide a secure digital inheritance tool for asset protection, ensuring that in the case of an unforeseen event, your family will be protected. They will be aware of your assets and know where to locate them and how to claim them.
