I am the one who lose the passwords regularly.The reason is that I use different passwords for different sites.Also I will not visit those sites often.Hence if I go the site after some time,I will forget my password,hence I have to request for a new password through mail and I have to wait for it too. I don't this habit but yet due to the carelessness I lose the passwords.Hence I have put a note pad to mark my username and passwords. Do you of the same kind? Happy myloting

Hi mailtormesh. You should try using a password manager, so you can store all your passwords and usernames in one place. Do a searh for "AnyPassword" its free and is a great way to store all your passwords, you can even copy and paste passwords from it to the website or whatever you want to log onto. Hope that is of help.

I am guilty of forgetting my passwords. Haha! Thank goodness for easy retrieval process. Now, I save my usernames and passwords on notepad and then open that file whenever I forget what my un/pw is. I recommend that technique to all of you out there who tend to forget your passwords. Have a nice day! :)

I have like 3-5 different passwords. I have like 3 usernames I guess. But I only use like 2 of them now since I am not good at remembering things. I sometimes have to write it down if I think I wont remember it. The sites that I go to much often, I can never forget the pass. If you had one password for every site that would be pretty bad if someone found out about it. So I change it time to time just to be on the safe side. You know...anything can happen.

since i don't have very memory, i just have two different passwords, one is 6 digit and the other is 8 digit and several usernames. so even if i do forget the username and password combination, it won't take me very long to try all the combinations.

If you use Firefox, it has a password keeper and you can put your passwords in it. Also there is a password keeper called Scarabay. I use it to keep my passwords in it. Now if you are a Mac user, I do not know how to help you. But I make very confusing passwords when it comes to my banking sites and I have had to request them when I lost my old password keeper. I would not trust a notepad, more likely to shred it.

hello mailtoramesh i usually use the same password on all of the different websites that i am a member of except for a few of them like paypal's website and websites like that. sometimes when you join a website your password usually has to be so many letters long and sometimes websites even require you to put some kind of a number or numbers behind your letters. so for the most part, it is very easy for me to remember all of the different passwords that i have for the many different websites that i am a member of. take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

First,to keep it safe,I actually use my accounts only on my personal computer,and also never let computer remembers those usernames and passwords automatically like the cookie function,in case my computer will be under attack of some kind of virus some day,then it would be a trouble. Second,my passwords are consisted of specific numbers and letters,such as my birthday,my telephone number,some of my favorite words or even a combination of birthday of both mine and my girlfriend's. Third,some time when i have to change my passwords,i get to have them written down temporarily on a paper to avoid confusing them. Forth,i try to register as few websites as i can just for conveience,so i usually can remember these information by myself. Fifth,my girlfriend also help me to keep some accounts information that is not seemed very important,then this password thing is not a problem to me,hehe

I never forget my password if it is my routine password. However, some sites insist that the member has to have particular type of password only. Like one alphabet or one sign or some numerics and some alphabets like... that makes me change my routine passowrd because I have a password which is a mixture of so many things. But new one I do tend to forget very often. As long as username is concerned, I do not use too many usernames and so there is hardly any chance of forgetting the username.

I've had websites that i've signed up for, maybe even didn't think I'd ever use, so I made a password I wouldn't remember, then I find out about it again, or think about it again and my interest change and I like it, or the websites changed or something, and then I have to request it again. Then again there's times I just forget the password because I hadn't been on the site since a password I had previously, etc...

Hi mailtoramesh. I always forget my usernames and passwords. Long long time ago, when I begin using the Internet, I decided a password to use for all of my accounts. However, I found this not working, because different websites have different requirements on username and password. For username, the name I entered may be used by others already. For password, some websites said my password was too short, some said too long, some require me to enter only numbers, some require me not to enter numbers. As a result, I have many, many usernames and passwords, which is impossible to remember (in fact, I never try to remember them). I think you also have this experience if you were joining websites for making online money, right? :)

Ya this is the reason to choose a separate notepad to write my user names and passwords

Hmmm... happened to me a long time back ,so got rid of that habit by having specific passwords only for mails , and another set of passwords for other types of web accounts.This helped to a large extent. i dont write down,because it will surely be misused . On a whole i keep up with fewer passwords,than risking loosing it . Cheers!

Since you come to the different site mailtoramesh, you need to have one emial address. All the application and approval were to be send to your email. Dont erase it so that you can request for the password.
