Military Grade Security For Your Digital Assets

Keep your passwords, files and memories where they can’t be stolen.

Keep your passwords, files and memories where they can’t be stolen.

Dylan O'Brien, Founder/CEO

Our Story

BePrepared was born when founder, Dylan O’Brien, was in a near miss car accident. In that moment, Dylan reflected on what his family would have had to do to piece his affairs together, and recognised the incredible burden of stress and confusion that would have landed upon their shoulders. He decided that he had a responsibility to take care of this for them and took action.

“As a software developer of 10+ years, my biggest concern was for the safety of all the high-value data I was leaving behind – so from ground up the entire application was developed with that in mind”.

SAFE, SECURE AND PROTECTED

why we needed to be more secure than banks

While designing BePrepared, we considered security at every decision. During this time it became apparent that banks aren’t the gold standard for digital security that we all expect.

Banks don’t care about people seeing how much money you have – they care more about someone moving that money.

We decided to be better.

Testimonial_Image
I’ve started recording video messages for my kids. I had originally intended to do them just for milestone events (16th, 21st, wedding etc.), but now have found myself doing them more and more frequently. When I pass away, BePrepared will share them with my kids – It’s nice to know I can still be there for them.

BePrepared allows me to tell my family who to contact in order to take over my business website, and provide logins for my email account. I feel much calmer now knowing my business will continue to support my wife when I’m gone.

I use my BePrepared account to store important information about my children – like their medications and allergies, and their favourite ice cream flavour and toys – And my clients bookkeeping. It’s reassuring to know that if something happens to me and my husband, the right people will find out how to keep my kids healthy and happy, and my clients will be well looked after.

I’ve uploaded all my unreleased music to BePrepared - Hopefully I won’t need it, but if I do – at least I know my friends will hear my songs and be able to release them for me.
