Facilitate the administering of a digital legacy
At the beginning of 2020, we decided to build a software with the purpose to help the heirs of a loved one to manage the digital part of the estate. We found that the big majority of people have not prepared anything concerning how to pass over their digital heritage when they die. Relatives are losing many memories due to them not being able to access the computer they inherited, and there haven’t been many options to get help with this. Many cherished memories such as family pictures, travel videos, documents, data from social media, etc. have been lost.
Our goal became to create a service that would make it easier for the heirs to take over the digital legacy. We knew the forensic tools existed but due to their complexity they are impossible for an average user to utilise. We wanted to create a software adapted to the average user, a software we could see being utilised on our computer upon passing. A service that would put the integrity of the deceased first. Slowly the concept of Lockero was created.
