What are "digital assets"?

What are "digital assets"?

Digital assets are any, and all of the intangible assets, and digital material uploaded by the user to the system, including without limitation, written messages, pictures, videos, digital books, articles, music files, blogs, account access information such as: internet accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), e-mail accounts, file storage accounts (Drop Box, Apple Cloud, Google Drive, etc.), smartphone access permissions, and more.

Responsibility and ownership of access rights to such accounts are a complex issue after a person dies. Most websites lack a uniform policy regarding an individual’s digital accounts after his or her demise. Therefore, online accounts whose owners have passed away, remain latent and inaccessible, or are deleted due to lack of activity. Sometimes, hackers take over the accounts and use them to distribute spam. Therefore, the ability to leave digital assets guarantees you peace of mind and security regarding all of your important information.
