Google’s Inactive Account Manager Reminder

Last week I received a reminder from Google about my Inactive Account Manager settings. The notice, reminded me of my timeout period and the contact I specified to receive my information.

One key component of digital estate planning is keeping your plans up-to-date. In fact, any number of changes in your life or in how you use technology can create a need to update your plan. This reminder is an excellent example of how companies can help you keep your plans current.

Whether you’re using the Inactive Account Manager or not, consider ways you can remember to update your plans. Perhaps you could set up a recurring meeting on your calendar? Or maybe you want to update your plans each time you change your password? Whatever reminder you choose, make sure you take the time to update your digital estate plans on a regular basis.
