Grim as it may sound. Death is part of life, and it might surprise us, especially in times like this. It is why we should prepare. Some of us are alone in Finland, and our relatives are far away, or we might not have anyone to take care of us or fight for us in these uncertain times. 

Some of us might think that we should not think about death at the moment. The thought of it is scary and frightening, but we should prepare because it will help our loved ones to survive and overcome the tragic situation. There are many practical things to consider before and after death. It might be overwhelming, along with grief and sorrow.

Digital Testament

In today's digital world, most of us have various digital and social accounts; some of these accounts might have money such as gaming, bonus, and bank accounts. Some accounts might not have monetary value, and others have sentimental value that contains precious photos, memorable videos, and essential documents.

We also have applications in various technical outlets such as our computers, pads, and phones. We might even have older versions of these appliances but kept them because they are somehow dear to us.

It's essential to take these accounts and appliances in order, updated and organized if you want that the most important documents and memories will be forwarded to the next generation. 

Importantly, we also need to grant access to someone we trust when we are not able to do so. We all know that all of these accounts are secured and stored behind passwords, two-factor authentication, and other security measures provided by the application enterprise.
