I've been guilty in the past of using the same password for everything. I've solved that now by using the same word but with something different at the beginning or end that is easy to remember and relatable to the website/folder or whatever I'm opening.
Previously I didn't have any trouble remembering different passwords but recently I've set up accounts for my son on a few websites that I also have an account on - Amazon for example, so that he can have his own wishlist - and that has really confused me! I need a system I think.....
I dislike passwords one needs them for all sorts of things, think how many you have. ie on the net for a large variety of sites, shops, bank. clubs, far too many to remember, for the net just send a message to say password forgotten and they send another one. we are told not to write them down , can someone tell me how does one remembers 50 to 100 of them
I am not too bad with my passwords. It is probably time to change them as I have used the same ones for a while.
Fran mentioned that she writes them down and keeps them in a special place . I think that is a good idea. I used to be quite cryptic about my password records. I heard a criminologist recently say that passwords are not something burglars search for. Burglars want quick sale items not your secrets , usually. I would like my husband to be able to delete my Facebook account etc if I should die - so I need to put a list somewhere he can find them in that event.
