Lots of website- lots of passwords

I'm working in a call center and call center agents can testify how many passwords we need in order for us to login to our systems. Plus lately I've been active in a lot of websites that, of course, also requires a password. I can never keep all these passwords memorized. Some are unchangeable. Any idea how can I keep my password organized and minimize resetting it?

I use 3 passwords on different sites and I memorized them all. If ever I entered the wrong password I'll go for the second or the third one. You can save your password on your cell phone or email add as a draft anyway so that you won't forget it. That's what i always do.

So the hackers can get your passwords easily enough! NEVER leave passwords in your email account!

stuckonu if you have Firefox browser when you set up an account that needs a password you can tell it to save your password and it does it each time you log in to that site or account also . also my son set up in notebook a file for me where all my various passwords are stored. and you copy and paste from it to any site you wish to log in .Too its also another way to keep a lot of them straight without anyone who does not need to know ever knowing your passwords. I use the' ave my password feature from mylot a lot and I do mean a lot.Copy and paste is a great way to avoid making a spelling error to in putting down your password. hope this helps a bit.

I keep a very small notebook under my monitor that contains all the usernames and passwords. It is important to never use the same password on more than one site. Also, your password should be complicated enough that you can't remember it. When you do remember most or all of it, it is time to change it again! Never keep your passwords on your computer!

I also use a notebook. It is the only safe and reliable way of keeping track of hundreds of different passwords!

Just easy, keep a notebook or organizer with you for your passwords. It is not a good practice to use only one password to access different websites because these may only lead to hacked accounts. Never ever keep the same passwords. It is also wise to change your password if you think it has been compromised. Do not allow save password option if you are not using your own personal computer and if you think others may have the access to use your computer. It is also a good practice to delete the cookies and history of the pc that you have used in order to erase what you have accessed online.

I usually use one password for a majority of my accounts online, to minimize confusion. Although for more important things such as Paypal, I come up with a totally new password which I usually force myself to remember.

And this is why I try and keep the number of websites that I rather have to log into to a small and mostly manageable number. There are a lot of times where a lot of people do have a lot of passwords to keep track of. And its not a good idea to leave that kind of information lying around, because you never know who is going to have it. Keep it simple enough where you can remember it but not simple enough where it is a weak password. Keep it so it is relevant to you.
