Regular life checks for peace of mind.​

Imagine this button in a train, where the train driver has to push it once in a while. If he stops, the train will brake and eventually save the passengers.

Of course, there’s no WordPress Plugin that can save lives (uuhm, maybe we can?), but EmergencyWP can detect anomalous behaviours and start processes in case of incidents, emergencies or even death.

Take care of (digital) assets, prepare a will, transfer values.

EmergencyWP can deliver digital values, wills and even simple future letters to predefined recipients.

What is EmergencyWP?

EmergencyWP is a system that works like a dead man switch. Designed by a freelancer for freelancers (and other people who handle personal and business information), EmergencyWP checks on your life status with so called life checks in a self-chosen frequency. You can save information or prepare messages for the case of an emergency (accident, death, etc.), and EmergencyWP will deliver them to your family, friends or clients if you stop to confirm your life checks after a given period of time.

What's the purpose of EmergencyWP?

It was on one of my daily routes to work, when the idea behind EmergencyWP came to my mind. I wondered if my wife could handle all the business stuff that mostly I care about at home – from contracts to bank accounts, monthly bills and other things. And what about my clients? I handled more than 250 hosting logins for them and if I would be gone suddenly, many people and companies could struggle the more or less. So I invented EmergencyWP for myself first and I am using it since 2016. With this plugin, I want to provide the insurance-like tools for all people who can use it themselves or help other users benefit from it. If you want to further support the work with a donation, feel free to do this with an amount of your choice!

What is a life check and what does it do?

A life check is a regular email that contains a confirmation link. Clicking that link or button will reset the EmergencyWP counter. If a life check stays unconfirmed for a preconfigured time frame (of your choice), a reminder will be sent. If the reminder is being ignored as well, EmergencyWP will trigger the famous process it was designed for (sending messages, delivering information, handling your assets – you name it).

Life checks can be setup between 24 hours and 6 months, while the time frames for the confirmation can be setup between 12 hours and 30 days.

How safe is the EmergencyWP process?

We have more than 700 beta testers using EmergencyWP since 2016. Since 48 months, we had no negative feedback on any process-related issues.

Software is, however, steadily improving and never finished 🙂

I'm no technician. Can you install and set it up for me?
