I have the same password for my yahoo mail,gmail,orkut,facebook,mylot and for my college website. The reason is I am not that good at remembering things, so though i know it is unsafe to have the same password, i tend to do so. However, usernames are different and i tend to make a note of them in my diary. How about you? do you have same password for everything or different password? What do you think is the advantage of having different passwords and having same password?

Different Passwords :) I think I'm too paranoid to have just one password for all my accounts. However, my passwords are grouped according to category. There's one password for work-related matters... Another password for personal stuff... Another password for online banking... And lastly a different password for social networking sites.

Go for it :) For security reasons, you shouldn't have just one password. I forgot to mention that in my post earlier.

Hello Rakesh,I have three email accounts and all have different passwords.Even when I am using orkut,facebook,myLot I used different passwords,no same password for any of the sites though I used the same username for all the accounts.If a person uses the same passwords everywhere, then there is a chance that some might misused his account, in otherwords hacked his account.Moreover it is always good to keep changing your password and not forgetting it.

Hi Rakesh, I used to have one id and password for everything. Then I started hearing horror stories about accounts being hacked and so forth; then I begun creating different ids for different websites. I might be using the same account but different passwords and so on. I usually keep a record of this in my diary (handwritten )!
