Chris’ brutally-complicated tech landscape (and how someone can access his Digital Estate)

  • Over 200 online accounts stored in a password manager vault

    • each account has a unique email address (you read that right)

    • each account has a unique password that is either 40+ characters or five words in a passphrase (CP doesn’t joke about this)

    • A number of online accounts require multi-factor authentication.

  • Chris’ wife knows there is a specific book in their house with a sheet of paper inside it. This sheet of paper contains:

    • The passphrase used to authenticate to the password manager vault.

    • The PIN code to his mobile phone

    • The name of the MFA authentication app on the phone and the password to authenticate into it

    • Any additional information not stored in Password Manager, e.g. Bank password
