I Wish I Knew: Understand electronic devices.

May 19, 2017 by Ellen Abramson

Many of us have multiple electronic devices. These can range from computers and tablets to phones, cameras, videocameras and wireless modems and routers. These devices house photos, videos, books, documents, recipes, address books, bills, diaries, and so much more. If a life event happened would your family know how to locate and access these important items?

It is very important to create a log of all of your electronic devices and record the following information…

  • Typical location of devices.
  • The password to access the devices. There is nothing worse than not being able to open a device because you have no clue what the password is. Don’t forget the wifi password.
  • What is stored on the devices. If the information is located in a specific folder or app, make sure to note where the file can be found.

Don’t let your electronic life get lost in cyberspace. Give yourself the peace of mind and record what devices you have and pertinent information about them. Unlock the roadmap to your life files for your loved ones or they will be locked up forever.
