In January, I turned 45. These milestone birthdays really make you step back and revaluate your life. As a husband and a dad of three kids, I have to think about my family’s safety and security. In addition, my wife and I have to consider our aging parents’ well-being. When you’re in your mid-40s these concerns can consume lots of brain power.
Although I’m healthy and in good shape, I have noticed that my memory isn’t as good as it once was. I lose my keys daily and I often find myself walking into rooms and forgetting why I went there. A bad memory plus being responsible for managing important family information is not a good combination.
To combat my poor memory, I’ve enlisted Master Lock Vault as my digital brain in the cloud.
This service securely stores and encrypts important documents, manages passwords, and allows you to set reminders for yourself.
On any given day, I have to manage several documents – business contracts, insurance documents, medical claims, tax forms. As you can image each of these documents contain sensitive personal information – not the kind of info you want floating around freely on the web. Master Lock Vault gives me peace of mind because I can encrypt my documents before sending them.
This service is also quite useful if you have to take care of older parents. Get copies of their important documents and upload them in Master Lock Vault in case you need to access them quickly.
The thing I like most about Master Lock Vault is the ability to set reminders. I use it to remember important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries (I forgot my wedding anniversary last year. Bad move, Mocha Dad)
You can also set up reminders for your parents to take their medications, schedule doctor’s appointments. Reminders can be sent via e-mail, text message, or voicemail.
If you’re like me and find yourself forgetting important things, you should try Master Lock Vault. It is the safe and secure online service that protects the things that are important to you and your family.
