Do you copy & paste to login to several online paid sites?

Sometimes we open several online paid sites at a time, such as PTC/PTR/GPT, etc. There are some site where we have to refill the user name and password, to make it easier can be done with copy and paste. With the first copy of our user name and paste to each site, then do the same for the password. Do you do it to make it easier?

I do not use the copy paste feature to log in to sites.I manually type the username and password.If we do copy paste for a password it may get stored in the buffer.If someone gets access to the computer he can read the buffer and he will ge tthe password.

If you worried with the buffer, after login, to remove the password from the buffer, copy 1 letter such as letter "a", then the buffer contents have changed with the letter "a". So the password will not be known by others. That need to be feared if the browser is set to remember the password, the others will be easy to enter the site.

Right, almost all existing browsers already have the feature to remember the user name and password. But there are some site for security reasons, do not allow the browser to remember it . Because when using a public computer, if accidentally set to remember the password and not to delete it with Clear Private Data as on Firefox, could be harmful to the user , especially for important site.

Unsafe if created the same user name and password for each site. For security reasons I created a different password for each site . Therefore I can not remember its, I save the user name and password for each site in the document. I arrange the order in the document same with the bookmark in accordance with the priorities, making it easier when login with the copy and paste method.

I can't use this method...I use a different user name and password for every site!! To be honest, I think you should at least use different passwords. Unscrupulous admin sometimes steal their users' accounts on other sites. If you just use trustworthy sites, you'll probably be OK, but sometimes even the trustworthy ones go bad eventually.
