CryptoTestament’s new Kickstarter campaign provides tools to safeguard important financial and digital information
Montreal, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/19/2017 -- CryptoTestament, developers of new encrypted technology tools to secure postmortem digital legacies — including credentials and passwords, Bitcoin accounts and digital files —today launched its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to bring the digital technology to consumers.
CryptoTestament bridges the gap between estate laws, which grant families access to digital data, and privacy laws, which often prohibit access after a family member has passed away. As simple as using a thumb drive or saving a file to the cloud, CryptoTestament uses AES 256-bit encryption with a manageable console allowing CryptoTestament to unlock the device after death. The device is secured using the same certification used by the NSA and other govern-ment agencies. With the proper credentials and proof of death, the company works with the ex-ecutor of the will to pass the secure digital legacy on to the family member or confidante chosen by the client.
"In today's digital landscape, more and more sensitive information, both personal and financial, is being stored digitally and is not recoverable after death unless family members have access to passwords and accounts. CryptoTestament aims to address this growing issue and preserve one's 'digital legacy' for their heirs," said Tom Falardeau-Leclerc, CryptoTestament's CEO and founder. "Bitcoin accounts, for example, are not recoverable after death without specific creden-tials and families can suffer significant financial losses if they do not properly plan. Estate plan-ning must now account for digital activity, and CryptoTestament easily meets that need for con-sumers."
Various storage sizes of USB-style encrypted devices are utilized to meet individual storage needs. Free for the first year of service, the devices are (all U.S. dollars) $70 for 8GB, $90 for 16GB and $110 for 32GB.
"CryptoTestament works like a safety deposit box at your bank," Falardeau-Leclerc said. "It is an extra layer of protection necessary to preserve and secure all sensitive digital files, including cryptocurrency accounts, passwords, music, video, photos and more in this digital age."
