I have many usernames and passwords like you. I usually remember the ones that I use often. But the ones that I seldom use I refer to where I have them written down which is sort of random, so anyone looking would be hard pressed to make sense of it.

I hope you don't keep them on your computer. You could loose them in a computer crash or some spyware might get them.

i have different sets, but they don't vary that much because i am so forgetful. so i need to have a pattern at least in order for me to remember them. so much for security, but when i can't remember them, then what's the use? hahaha

Hi, shiloh_222. Like you I have many sets of usernames and passwords. I even have different emails for various purposes. I have a little system in place that helps me remember which set I have used and when I use them. I still have a hard copy that I keep but I have a system for the hardcopy and you have to know my system in order to know decode which username goes with which password.

Hello shiloh_222, I have three main sets of username for my different accounts in emails, website, forums and the likes. That way I don't have problems remembering them in my mind and I don't have to jot them down to keep a hardcopy. But I don't always maintain the same password for a period of time. I usually change my password for each account every six month or so. For me its important to do so I'll know that my email accounts, website username, etc.. are secured. :-)

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm! in the past I have so many ID and passwords some time I do forget my ID and password on some my email accounts, but I have narrow them to the number I can remember, then on the forums I maintain one id and different password, I think is not good to have so many different id and passwords because you will easily forget them.

unfortunately, I have more than I can remember. I try to keep my passwords rememberable and I try to stick with a basic 3 or 4 different ones, but somehow I still lose track. I have a few e-mail addresses and I have several usernames. I made myself a list at one point, but that was all work related. I have created a few more since than and I've lost track. Some of them are for work at home related sites.

to be frank with you shiloh, I have so many i even have lost count. I keep adding them to a note book and refer to them when needed-unfortunately most of the sites turned out to be bogus, so i stuck with what seem to work, those are ones I remember off hand.
