We know that everyone has a different level of comfort when it comes to storing his or her personal information. Some people are completely comfortable doing their banking online, storing credit card information on various sites, and even storing personal information in the cloud, and others not so much. This is why My Life & Wishes (ML&W) has been designed to meet EVERYONE’S comfort level.
Did you know that ML&W is a “zero-knowledge” platform and organization? This means NONE of our employees or staff can see, or has access to, your personal information! Additionally, we implement end-to-end encryption, ensuring your data is encrypted through all points it travels, from your web browser, to our servers, and to all the places it is stored and backed up for redundancy.
From the moment you start using our application, your data is encrypted as you send it to us using SHA 256 encryption and 2048 bits of encryption power; this is the equivalent to a number that is 617 digits long! Your encrypted personal data is even encrypted again when it is stored and transmitted between systems, and only retrieved when you need it. (Our technology uses AES 256 encryption; the same quality relied on by banks, the military and the U.S. government.) Your data is uniquely encrypted for you and those that you choose to share it with.
Your password is also encrypted and stored in an irreversible way. We use industry-recommended best practices to ensure your password is stored in a way that is challenging, to say the least, to figure out. Someone would have to spend a lot of time and money to reverse engineer your password by guessing all the possible passwords and then hashing each of them in hundreds of ways to figure it out. Be sure to pick a good password to ensure you make it even more challenging for someone to guess it.
Your information is encrypted and stored in a hosting provider that has 24/7 physical and biometric protections, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and an array of other technological safeguards and 24 different security certifications.
Many of our customers have told us that they use their account fully, completing all sections and data to be as helpful to their families as possible. Although, we do have a few customers that will always have concerns about storing any kind of personal information online. So, they choose to complete their site with all the basic information their families will need (such as copies of health care directives, location of insurance policies and accounts, instructions on how to handle funeral arrangements, burial wishes, what to do with their pets, social media accounts, special bequests, and the list goes on.) None of this information would be detrimental if it ended up in the wrong hands. But it will still make the process of unwinding their digital and financial life so much easier for their family!
So, whatever your security comfort level is, My Life & Wishes will work for you!
