IFiDie Facebook App Delivers Messages from Beyond the Grave

I know it’s a bit gloomy, but it is true nonetheless – the only thing that’s sure in this life is that you will eventually die. You can’t be sure that you will be successful, you can’t be sure that you will find the love of your life, you can’t be sure about anything. What you can be sure of is that some day you will die.

With that in mind, wouldn’t it be cool if you could send a message to your friends and family from beyond the grave? A final fair well to your loved ones, or a final screw you to someone you couldn’t stand but had to put up with.

That is the premise of IFiDie, a Facebook app developed by Willook, an Israel-based startup that specializes in time capsule services and products. Thanks to the IFiDie app, videos and text messages can be posted to your Facebook wall after you die.

Now since you will be dead, you will not be able to post any video or test message. So how is your message from beyond the grave posted to your wall? After installing the app, you are asked to select 3 trusted friends from your list of Facebook friends. Those trusted friends will then be informed that when you die, it is their task to confirm your death. When all three friends confirm your death, your video or text message will be posted on your Facebook wall.

Making the video or text message public after you’re dead is fine, but while you’re still alive, you may not want others to get to see that video or text message. The topic of security and privacy comes up. According to the developer, the abovementioned Israeli startup Willook, you have nothing to worry about since all the messages are safely stored on a secured server.

If you would like to learn more about this app, visit the app’s official site at ifidie.net (please note that it automatically redirects you to Facebook) or check out this YouTube video.
