I am already 66 years old. I almost forget things. I have several email addresses, Facebook account and fan pages, several websites and social media accounts. They are impossible to remember their passwords. What I did is to have a little book or a diary which has all my passwords. I always carry it. I even let my grandchildren keep it when I need them she's always ready to supply those things.

As I am always forgetful unintentionally. I tend to write everything and post it to remind me of what should i be done and helps me remember important matters. With that, even password use must also be the same for me to easily remember. Aside form it, in my laptop and Cellphone, it is remembered and save for easy login and retrieval

Sometimes i struggle to log in on some sites with the password i thought i have created. Though i do write some password in a book and hide somewhere, but when i still try to no avail, i conclude that either i have forgotten it or it is some error. And sometimes i end up changing the password to a new one.

Then I realised I couldn't use the same phone no which they ask you to verify your account with so I had to use my granddaughter's phone no. to get the code they send. I hope it works and I will make sure I write it down this time :?
Thanks for the info, I wasn't aware of this in seemit. I actually use a type of my password that I can always remember even different passwords.

Yes, sometimes I forgot my passwords but after recovering it I listed them in notepad so if ever I forgot again I have my notes. You can write it down on a piece of paper all of your passwords it's a big help in case you forgot your passwords.

Rarely. It's only those sites who decide to be different like forcing you to have a certain password or restricting the minimum or maximum number of characters or types of characters.

A nice way of creating a unique password for each site is as follows.

Take the first two letters of a website's name eg Fo

Pick a word you will remember such as your favourite city eg Copenhagen

Pick a 5 digit number eg 12345

This creates your unique password for this site: FoCopenhagen12345

If for whatever reason you want to change it (or are forced to change it), just add 1: FoCopenhagen12346

So your Amazon password would be AmCopenhagen12345.

Easy for you to remember (or get after a couple of goes), hard for anyone to guess or any machine to hack.

I used to forget, but now I have a made up password which I do not forget and others do not remember even if I tell them.

I use the initials of each word in a specific sentence that relates to my life for the core of all my passwords and then add just a few initials with punctuation that are obvious for each site. The core sentence is varied and long enough by itself to be highly secure according to the password security tests. When I add in the few last key letters that relate to a specific site, they are different for each site, impossible for me to forget and almost impossible to crack by hackers since the core sentence is meaningless to anyone else.

I use a password manager. The manager generates random passwords, and then stores them, so I don't have to remember when logging in, I can just click a button.

The best bet not to forget one's password is having one password for all sites but I think this can be a bit risky though

Forgeting password is very common problem. Therefore, I save passwords in my broswer as well as save on a word file.

I have a unique combination of words and numbers that I always use. Some sites have specific requirements so I just changed it up a little bit. I also use autosave so I can always go to my passwords on my Google account to recover it if I ever forget.
