Hello mylotters, having your unique account name here in mylot am so curious to know if in other sites or ptc's upon signing up do you use the same unique account name as what you have here in mylot? Happy mylotting.

in every site that i am joining i do not use the same user name and password for each site. i had different names for each site. i save my username and password on my mobile so if i forgot i just check it on my mobile.

Hello krisnel, thank you for sharing. But would it be not safe at all to keep in your mobile what if in case it got lost? Happy mylotting.

I do have the same username and password for most of the sites that I visit. Helps me to remember them easily.

Thank you for sharing sagnik, just that it might not be safe for opportunist hackers if you used all throughout the same username and password?

I mostly use the same username, but I don't use the same password.

That's nice to know zralte but it's not hard for you to remember your different password? Guess wouldn't be able to forget your password, I find it bit difficult to remember all different passwords really though. Happy mylotting, thank you so much.

Hi, I personnaly never use the same username or password for any other websites that I am a member of. I prefer to use unique names each time. I think this is best policy as it gives you that little bit extra security from online hackers. I dont let anyone know my own usernames or passwords, I would hate to think what would happen if a computer hacker had access to all my personnal information. My internet security is something I take very seriously nowadays, I think everyone should.

Hello haddowz, thank you for sharing. But isn't it hard to remember all your username and password to different accounts? Yes we should be careful with our accounts but I think there are some softwares available that we could use against hackers? Happy mylotting.
