What about bank account numbers, etc. If you use KeePassX 2 or similar, what about access to it?
Do you have the necessary passwords written down with instructions, sealed in an envelope and stored in a safety deposit box? Something else? We tend to keep more and more financial, legal and medical information on our personal computers rather than keeping paper copies (I am an old guy but my wife and I keep everything in electronic form unless required by law to keep a paper copy -- so I expect the "younger" crowd probably tends to do so as well). We keep at least two backups of such data -- copies to our shared file server and backups to external drives. One of our children has the master password to our password vaults -- there is a non-negligible possibility that both of us could be badly hurt (or killed) in the same accident (e.g. plane or car crash). Anyway, with our emphasis on Qubes and security, I was curious about this other aspect of people's affairs. Do you have all your important data locked down in Qubes so *only* you can get at it?
