Hi friends I am sure most of you guys would have more than 5 different usernames and passwords, as for me i have around 8 different usernames and passwords, right now i am struggling to keep everything in mind, plus my memory is also weak....so now i am writing down any new password or username created on a paper or in a notepad and refer to it wenever required People say that is the most foolish thing to do, because anyone can read it and get in to your personal stuff, i however make sure to use code words so that only i can understand...I was wondering how would you guys remember such difficult things??? Happy my Lotting

Hi buddy, I have many account on the internet, such as e-mail, facebook, myLot, blogger, and other website. To save my passwords and avoid to lose it, I always save it in my Laptop. I always save my password in a note pad and place it in the place where no one except me can found it. If you doubt you save it safely, just save it in a *.rar extension and give it a password (call it master password). remember your master password, so if you forget your password on the internet just open it with your master password. I think it is safer than you just save it and hidden it.

we can remember our password with some consideration, may be we can use our "parents", but not their name you can choose something more specific, like their "big problem" or their "anniversary" and we record "our password" with that way in our brain we'll develop our brain

There's a program that I would definitely recommend and I don't know whether you have heard of it or not but it's called Roboform! This is a program which you can either use for free or you can upgrade to the premium version, this means that you can save an unlimited amount of passwords. Anyway, by using this program you can log into all the websites that you are a member of and your passwords, usernames, etc will be input automatically by the roboform software. This is a great idea and has proved to be very useful for me. I have come to rely on this program now. There's nothing to worry about either in terms of security, it's totally safe. I would definitely not recommend writing your passwords down on paper, this can be very risky and can lead to loss of data or information. Check out the website www.roboform.com Good luck. Andrew

I use much more passwords than this and I can not remember all of them. But what I do to remember this is that I have saved them in two of my mailing cites and I remember the passwords of those two mailing cites. Everytime when I will need some password that I do not remember I can just look it up from that mail. This way there is no chance that somebody else can read those passwords. And also I have sent it to two so if by chance one of them is not working I have the backup also. May be you can also use the same thing.

hey dude this is the common problem which every new user faces. but i dont find any difficulty in it because i write all my pass words and regarding the security i apply a folder lock option on that particular folder so there is no question of getting hacked

Hi there san_683, I usually write down the user name and a very different passwords for different sites in a note pad which I keep next to my computer. Usually nobody touches this pad, because nobody understands computers in my house. Usually my pass words are simple words, and not a complicated mathematical formula.

Hi san_683, maybe this is not the best thing to do but I find it the easiest way to remember my username and password. I use the same username and password for everything so that i don't forget it unless I have sudden amnesia or something.

I have a list too. Kept where no one would really look. But, for the most part I just have 2 passwords - one that is quick & easy for my day to day stuff that isn't important enough for anyone to want, and another harder one for my banking, or other things that have too much private information. So, it's not too hard. What's harder is remembering my KIDS user names and passwords for all their game sites because they refuse to keep with the same one for each site!!

I only use one user name and password. so I do not have to bother to remember. so I remember the password, I use the name of the person closest to me.

I don't tell you how my friend. Because that is a private matter to me. I know as of days telling that idea is not good for me. I'm sorry my friend, if I didn't give any details on how I remember my passwords... have a nice day!

I usually use the same username and password unless a website assigns these to me. Most of them are my initials and last name or my email address and the I use the same password or something similar if the site requires more than one number. Sometimes, I have to try two or three combinations before I get it right.

I was using Roboform but the free trial ran out so know I use LastPass in Firefox or just have the browser remember my passwords. I tried the writing them down thing but it didn't work for me.

I have the same user name in the programs that i am in, that way i do not have to remember different ones, but i do have different passwords, that i keep written down so if i cant remember them i have them right in front of me.

Hi San_683, Just keep doing what you are doing right now, me too. I'm a newbie and i had sign up about 15 website and i can't even remember after 15 minutes that why i did samething as you. I always put all information of the website info or username and password in front of my desk so i will never forget it. So you are absolutely right. Cheers. Benten
