Frequently Asked Questions:
What does PinPal do ?
PinPal is your digital safe, where you can store the log-in details of your digital accounts and devices and store your important digital documents such as your Digital Will. PinPal allows you to nominate someone who can act as your Digital Executor and take control of your online accounts at some point in the future, when you are no longer around to do so.
What will they be able to do?
Your PinPal will be able to access the information stored in your Digital Safe and therefore all your devices and accounts, in order to memorialise them according the wishes in your Digital Will.
How does it work?
Once Your PinPal activates the process, an email is sent to both your own registered email address and that of your nominated Verifier. If you reply to the email [within 72 hours] then the process is halted and no information is shared. If no reply is received from you and your Verfier also confirms that you are no longer able to look after your online accounts, then your PinPal will be granted access to the information which you have entered into the system. At this stage your PinPal will then have control of the Accounts as agreed with you.
What is the difference between a PinPal and a Verifier ?
Your PinPal will be the first point of contact and the person given full access to your information. The Verifier will need to confirm access is allowed before permission is granted to your PinPal, but they woud not have access to any of your sensitive information.
What if I no longer trust my PinPal or Verifier?
Can I use PinPal for my Bank Account / Savings Passwords?
PinPal is only recommended for Social Media Accounts, to ensure that your digital legacy is handled according to your wishes. It should not be used with any information which could have any financial implications.
