do you guys tend to forget your passwords in some of the sites in which you are registered? what do you to keep all of your passwords remembered? do you use just one password for all of your sites? I have a site on which i have forgotten my user name and my password..i have retrieved it but still i can't log in so i just decided to give up on that site since it is just a site on which i look for products on sale..

Oh my daughter that happened to me several times before. I thought I was already old that's why I forgot them but now that you post about you forgetting as well then I feel happier. It's not the age that caused me to forget because you yourself is much much younger than I am but you also forgot passwords. H!ha!ha! You know what, I now use one password to all of the sites on the net. Now it it is no longer my problem. The problem perhaps is when I forget this only password that I use. Ha!ha!ha! That could be charged to old age already. No more excuse! Ha!ha!ha!

Hey kaezy! Well, I have keyboard patterns as my password for the different site. They are composed of different characters though but my password follow a similar pattern. Sometimes, I do get them mixed up and I end up using all the possible combination I have. It usually happens if I don't log in to that site for about a month or so. Take care!

that was tricky..hehehe the reason to that i have been forgetting my other passwords is that i do not visit them often...like my password in Auction..i have entered all the possible password that i might use but still i have no success..hehehe so i have just given up on it..

Yeah. It's tough at times but it helps a lot. Before, I do have different password such as name and number combinations. I can't remember any of 'em anymore. But it's really irritating if you forgot a password for something that's important. It happens. See 'ya around sis!

Forgetting password is common in those all who join lots of site. So i choose only two password. One main password for my mail account and one another for all sites. I will not make similar password for my mail account and other site. Just two password easy to remember and save my lots of time

i am really using a pattern for all of my passwords that is why i am kinda confuse on the reason why i can't log in to that site even if i had already retrieved my user name and password.. i tend to use my favorite # or sometimes birthday of my boyfriend..upon entering those i still can't enter the correct one..maybe i had been blocked already because it was such a long time since i have visited the site.

Maybe your username is wrong. Is it a username they gave you like '59286' or something?

Yeah. But I have 10 email addresses and some of them are old and full of spam and not used. Which email address do I use? haha

I think it's very important to have two different passwords - one for your email, and one for the sites you join. You never know if the site you're joining will get into your email. This is a sure way to get a lot of information about you.

Well so far so good i haven't forget my password yet, i try to create a password that i can remember but sometimes when i try to log in to mylot and type my password in an error message appears saying incorrect password and i know i typed in the right password, i wonder why that happens.

I used to forget my password before since I have so many online accounts. but when I use Roboform, which not only fills up form for me online, it also stores my password. it's a good software for those who have personal computers.

I will tend to forget my password very easily because i have so many sites with different password and user name that i cant really remember most of them.. lol So what i do is to write everything in a notebook, so that i can refer to it whenever i forget about my particulars.. hehe =D Or if not, i will store those information inside my cell phone.. lol

I have no such experience. I used to change my passwords for different applications on a regular basis. Passwords will be on a rotation basis. When you have a set of passwords and you keep on changing from one to the other, it is easy to remember.

The first years of my use of internet has got me problems with passwords and I even decide not to use the old email address that I have before because of forgetting its password, and that teaches me the lesson. As far as its possible i just use one password but I can't still just do that so I have other passwords on some important sites that I am using and I write all those usernames and passwords for each sites that I visit.

There is one site I have that problem with. I had to change my passwords again a few months ago an now for this one site I have the hardest time remembering what it is. It has been so bad that I have had to have it emailed to me then had to change it. I know Raz why don't you just write it down? Thing is then I have to remember where I wrote it down.

I use only one password for all my accounts,this way I will not forget it. If I would have a different password for all my accounts I would not remember them I would have to write them all down.

Hi Kaezy, I hate it when that happens. LOL! And it happens to me a lot. I try to make a unique password for each site I visit so, if one is compromised I don't loose everything. I have been writing my passwords on a piece of paper and instead of making a list on my computer which someone may be able to access. But, then I don't always have the list of passwords with me if I am away from home. So it is a bit of a hassle. Happy MyLotting and enjoy your weekend.

That's is my habitude. I have many account in internet site. My emails, friendster and etc. I make it different username and password, so I have a lot of username that I must remember.

Hi kaezy. I only use one username and password in all the sites that I've joined. I am really a forgetful person. And if ever a site requires more characters I just write the password and my username and the sites name in my notebook. I have a small notebook where I keep my sites and status of each one. HUGZ!

I do not use only 1 password, but tend to keep 3-4 of them over a period of time. So evenif i forget the right one, iknow it will be one amongst the other 3. Then i change all after a few months.

yes..as always, that's why..right now, i'm tyring to have one password (and usernames) for all the accounts that I have!! Lucky me if the username that I picked up is not already in use, poor me if i have to go on and keep remembering another username because the one i've been using along for a long time happened to be tagged along with another account user..T___T
