The Dead Man's Switch service is pretty straightforward: every couple of days you will receive an email asking you to confirm you're still alive. If you fail to confirm you're alive, you'll be presumed dead and 30 days after the service last heard from you, your email with the information you've selected will be sent to the person you've picked.
The service is simple. Type an email and optionally attach a few files. Every few days we will send you an email with a link that verifies you are still alive. If something does happen we will send your emails 30 days after we last heard from you. Is 30 days too long? No problem, someone close to you can use an emergency release code to dispatch the emails early.
Your emails and files are encrypted on the server using AES-256 encryption to help protect your data. Every effort is made to protect your information and to ensure delivery.
