Store your secret or passwords. We will keep it safe, only accessible by you.
We will ask you each month to confirm that you are still alive and sane.
When longer than a month no confirmation is received by us, a mail will be sent to the person you have mentioned as a trusted recipient. This person can then use the information to handle any affairs that need information that only you possessed.
‘It's a vexing, and increasingly common problem for families mourning the loss of loved ones. As more and more people move their lives, address books, calendars, financial information, online, they are taking a risk that some information formerly filed away in folders and desks might never be recovered. That is, unless they share their passwords, which poses security threats…’
‘I will always deny that I had an affaire with the neighbour from nextdoor, when I am dead, I don’t care anymore…’
‘The unexpected death of the owner of Canada's largest cryptocurrency exchange has left £145 million of cryptocurrency locked in a digital wallet to which he reportedly had the only password.’
Yes. Your data is fully encrypted and stored on ultra-secure servers with the best security rules. By using a personalized token your data is available to you and only you.

Why did I create FromHereAfter?
Short answer: COVID.
Longer answer: i was 18 year old (now 19). I just graduated from highschool without even having to take the final exams. What to do next? Go to university? And follow online classes from a room in a town where i hardly know anybody yet? Not an appealing outlook.
At the same time i worried about my grandparents. What if covid happened to them? My grandmother herself, she was worried that when her husband ended up in an intensive care unit, that she would not know what to do. She did not know the password of the computer and would have no idea how and where to find names and addresses of all contacts of my grandfather.
This gave me a purpose. I would learn how to develop an app. And to offer a solution for people like my grandmother in these uncertain times.
Now the app is here. I learned a lot and did avoid feeling down about the lockdownsituation. My granddad has put his password and instructions in his account in the app. My grandma feels less worried now.
You do not have to store a real secret or password, you can also store just a clue. As long as the person who is your trusted recipient understands the clue. You could also invent your own 2factor authentication: write down the password of the computer and tell the location of the passwordmanager you are using, but store the password of the passwordmanager for someone else.
