Hi, everyone. "Password" one word is no stranger to people, if it's setted too long or complex, it is easy to forget; if too short, easy to lose. I usually set it more complex, sometimes i will easy to forget. for example, last time i forgot mobile phone service password, so i must go to Mobile hall and provide five friends phone numbers, i spent two hours to do with it. Do you have a problem of forgetting password?

yes, i do have problem with forgetting my password. so what i do is make it very personal. i think i have changed my passwords several times. that's why i do not know what password to use, until i narrowed them down to two. one for personal use and other for professional use. i think it is working so far.

Hi, mensab, thanks for your response. To set more passwords is not better than to set two or three passwords, unless you can put them down. :)

Yes, I have ever met such problems at work. It is easy for me to remember the passwords for my personal emails and websites cause I frequntly log in and the passwords wont change once it is setted. But our SAP system at work requests us to update the password every five months and if we log in with the wrong passwords for 3 tims, it will be locked automatically. Everytime we must choose a new password different from previous 5 ones, which often confuses me. Now I like to write the password down on my notbook when I update it to a new one, then I will never forget it.

Hello chocalate2010! I keep several passwords. I use it for different accounts. It is not easy memorizing passwords especially if they are too complex. But I know I have to do my best to keep in mind my passwords. I am afraid to keep a list of my passwords as I might just misplace it and someone might use it. I don't think I would like that to happen.

Yeah you should see my list of websites passwords , the more websites or services that you sign on developes your acknowledge of a strong password usage and forces you to store your password list on some notes or piece of paper or eaven some electronic(maybey eaven cripted file) . But what hapens when you loose that list? The answer is simple "If it's important than make a copy and store it in a safe place."

no, i don't have problem with that. in order to easily remember my password, i usually use one or two kinds of passwords in all of my account. it is quite helpful especially if you have a bad memory. but be careful on revealing your password in other people or else all of your accounts will be hacked! :)

hi there! because of so many accounts online. etc. that needs passwords, we tend to forget one or two of them. one way you can prtevent yourself of forgetting passwords is to have one password for all of them. though this may have some security issues but atleast you will not forget them. another is to have one common subject of the password. its up to you how you will have your own pattern or way of doing it. but this works for me. anyways, you can always retrieve passwords.

I don't normally forget my passwords. I have a few I use depending on the site I'm on. Quite often I remember it. However, if it's a site or something I don't use very often, then I'm more inclined to forget. I almost locked myself out of my stripe because I forgot the password I'd used for it, but I remembered it eventually. I try to keep the password unique but simple enough to where it is easy to remember. On websites though I use programs that enter that information for me because I'm too lazy to care.

YES, YES, and YES lol I always seem to forget my password sometimes even my user name on other web sites, its really frustrating especially if its a password to one of your favorite sites. I didnt have this problem a couple of years ago but now that I'm a member of more sites I cant seem to remember my passwords, I have decided that the best thing to do to prevent this problem is to just write down all my site info down or print it then put it in a safe place.

Years ago I realized how difficult remembering all the IDs and passwords might get. Many websites require different lengths. Some require numbers and some don't. Its impossible to pick one password and use it for everything. So I bought a small telephone/address book at the dollar store. It already has alphabetized tabs. On the page I write first the name of the website for example, yahoo.com. Under that I write their contact phone number in case I need to call them. Then I write down the ID & password I use to log into that site. Every time I register on a new site, I put it down in my book. Everything is there. All I have to do is pick up the book and look under the website name. Over time you will have to get a new book and transfer the names you still use and throw away the websites you no longer go ot. But it has been the easiest way for me to keep up with it all.

Hi Chocalate, I don't have that problem and I'll tell you why. See, I have this handy dandy little notebook. In it I store all my important phone #'s and also all my passwords and user names........pretty much everything. I can't tell you how valuable this has been for me. It has saved me so much time and frustration! I would have surely forgotten various passwords over time. Not any more! I carry this notebook with me everywhere It's a lifesaver. You should get one.

I don't have the problem of forgetting the passwords, I've got a problem of confounding them. I sometimes use password of the on website on completely other site, because I have many accounts in different places, so it's easy to make a mistake.

Dear friend, I used to have before, now I would store in my cell or in computer itself. Moreover I mostly use same password. In case of any tight security I would prefer some complicated passwords making sure that I had stored in my cell or laptop too.
