How it Works

BE PREPARED. THE WAY YOU WANT.

Prepared.ly lets you upload the information, messages and documents you would like to be passed on if you die. If your life ends unexpectedly, the app ensures your digital assets are sent to the right people – but only if your specific security criteria are met.

How It Works

Add People

Add anybody you wish to leave items to.

Create & Upload

Upload files, or create records within the built-in editors.

Assign Items

Assign these items to the people you wish to receive them. 

How will you know if something happens to me?

Great question! The first step is for one of your elected ‘confidants’ to inform us of your passing from within a free Prepared.ly account. Confidants are people you trust implicitly – such as a lawyer, spouse or friend. From that point, we proceed to undertake independent verification of your passing before any data is distributed.

STEP 1
When creating your account, you assign as many people you want as confidants. These are people your trust completely, and are the only ones who are allowed to inform us of your passing.
STEP 2
If something happens to you, one of your elected confidants reports your passing.
STEP 3
Prepared.ly will try get in touch with you multiple times, via both your phone and email.
STEP 4
If it's unable to reach you, the app then asks the rest of your elected confidants to confirm you have indeed passed away.
STEP 5
When all your confidants have agreed unanimously on your passing, your data will then be automatically distributed to the correct people.
