Stornest enables users to share data from beyond the grave
New service from Dubai startup will enable people to save data and files to share with beneficiaries if something happens to them
A new Dubai-based service is offering users a way to leave digital content and data to their loved ones upon their deaths.
Stornest.com is intended as a secure digital repository where users can store data that can be shared with appointed beneficiaries if anything happens to them. The service has been created by Dubai startup Blue Solace.
The service can be used to store any type of data, such as financial asset information, passwords, notes, photos, or anything else, up to a capacity of 10GB. Stornest.com will then periodically check with the client, and release data to up to 10 beneficiaries if the customer does not respond.
The service can also be activated by a nominated third party who can inform Stornest in the event of the client's death.
The company said its service is based on trusted cloud storage, with data transfer encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) for data transfer, creating a secure tunnel protected by 128-bit or higher Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
The service features three plans, with various storage needs and number of beneficiaries, which are available for $39.99-$79.99 for an annual fee, or $99-199 for a lifetime fee.
