Wilton Continuing Education\u2019s new course, Organize Your Digital Afterlife, on Thursday, Oct. 26, will teach people what happens to their online accounts once they die and what they can do about it now. \u201cPeople assume that their heirs will be able to turn off these accounts,\u201d said course instructor Ann Zanon, who is the owner and operator of A2Z Organizing Solutions and one of three certified professional organizers in Connecticut. Through her Organize Your Digital Afterlife class, Zanon said people will learn tips and tricks to help them transfer their digital accounts, as well as \u201coptions for securely saving and accessing passwords.\u201d She will also provide a list of the accounts people often forget about. \u201cOne of my client\u2019s husband passed away and one of his accounts was hacked because no one notified the company of his passing,\u201d she said. \u201cThey did not close the account and didn\u2019t have his password.\u201d Creating a \u201cdigital estate plan\u201d is one thing people can do to make sure their online accounts are secured once they die, said Zanon. \u201cThat\u2019s one of the things I\u2019ll be having the participants begin to create.\u201d A digital estate plan, Zanon said, is \u201ca plan for their digital\/computer affairs after they die and how that plan is transferred to their heirs.\u201d Zanon said there are two main reasons why people should take her course \u2014\u00a0to \u201cget their digital affairs in order for their own personal use\u201d and \u201cto leave their digital affairs in order for their heirs.\u201d Organize Your Digital Afterlife begins at 7 p.m. and takes place in Room 150 at Wilton High School.
