FAQs

 

What is Legacyarmour?

 

Legacyarmour is a unique online service that allows subscribers to upload personal information with instructions to deliver that information to another person at a specific time, when the subscriber stops answering a periodic “heartbeat” message, or upon the subscriber’s demise. The information uploaded to Legacyarmour is fully encrypted so that it cannot be compromised.

 

What is a Vault? or e-Vault?

 

An e-Vault is the container that is being encrypted and stored. Think of it as a physical time capsule. The subscriber can put digital possessions in the capsule, and then SecretValet seals the capsule (encrypts it) and stores it until it is delivered to the designated recipient.

 

How do I secure my Vault with a Passphrase?

 

Selecting a passphrase that only you and your recipients would know is very important. Passphrase hints should be specific enough that only you and your recipient know the answer, but be relevant enough that both you and your recipient will remember the same thing. For example, a hint that states: “What did I have for dinner on our first date” may not be a good clue to ask if there is no reason for your recipient to remember. On the other hand, if you were wearing a white shirt, had spaghetti for dinner, and ended up staining your shirt right before going to another event, then this might be a good one. Passphrases should be 1 or 2 words.

 

What do I need to tell my recipient?

 

Nothing! This is the beauty of Legacyarmour. The recipient of your information doesn’t need to know that information is waiting for them or remember a passphrase.

 

How does my recipient know how to decrypt the information?

 

Legacyarmour uses “Shared passphrases” concept to encrypt information. You might not remember that a passphrase is “My$3cr3t$ay1ng”, but you will probably never forget that your friend John was the person that introduced you to your current spouse. Memories are both more consistent and more persistent than a simple passphrases, and the beauty is, your recipient already knows the answers!

 

What happens if my recipient changes their address, phone number, or email?

 

Legacyarmour will contact the subscriber annually to ask them to validate that they information we have on file is still valid.

 

In an emergency, can Legacyarmour help me access my vault if I really can't remember the passphrase or hints?

 

No. Because Legacyarmour is designed to be very secure, and to protect our clients against hackers and 3rd party intrusion, it is impossible for Legacyarmour to access, decrypt, or reset a subscriber’s Vault.

 

What is a collaborator?

 

A collaborator can either be a business such as a law firm or estate planner that is hired by a client to manage their assets in a legacyarmour vault. The client need not have an account with us as the delegate perform all activities all functions on behalf of the client. On the other hand, a subscriber to SecretValet can chose to create a capsule and assign a delegate such as a family member or a business to manage their capsule the same way they would

 

Do you support two factor authentication?

 

Absolutely. You may configure that under your profile options. Your cell phone number needs to be registered and verified with legacyarmour for this option to work

 

I'm worried about my data getting compromised. How Secure is Legacyarmour?

 

We care about your security. We encrypt your data at multiple layers, we do not store session cookies and since your vault is encrypted using your own encryption keys based on your shared passphrases/hints, we can never access the content of your vault. This is the way all encryption software should work.
