Client: LifeLot
Role: Design and Development
LifeLot is a private secure online storage service, or 'safe', to lock away important information about your life, safekeeping it now and into the future. It enables website users to keep important records of any part of their life - including documents such as birth certificates or a will.

There are also sections to upload pictures and videos for family and friends. The site is designed so that in the event that anything was to happen to you, your life could be 'wrapped up' with ease and less stress on loved ones.

If the website user was to die or be in a medical emergency, their pre-defined 'delegates' (the most trusted person in a person's life) will be given secure access to an Advance Care Plan or Will. A LifeLot account is transitioned to an 'unlocked' state by the LifeLot team.

The site - which has two step verification, bank-level SSL certificates and AES 256-bit encryption to store data - was fully designed and developed in house by beweb.

Lifelot staff are able to manage all aspects of the public facing site using beweb Savvy CMS. other than contact information ,data from individual users of the site is hidden from LifeLot staff view, to ensure all information is confidential and secure.
