Nice to know, even i like to have similar passwords but sometimes i forgot them and then i need to check the forgot password option and it wastes a lot of time

I always memorize my password for different online sites. Sometime I write down my password in a diary or a pocketbook. A few times I have forgotten the password of the sites I rarely visit. I have different passwords for different sites, so sometimes I tend to forget my password.

Of course, I forget passwords. But I don't rely on apps or browser features to keep or retrieve them. I use the 'password reset' feature instead. It also helps to follow a certain 'pattern' for generating passwords.

I could remember some of them that I use frequently but there were some for sites I don't use so often that I forgot. I don't ever write out the whole password, just a password hint so that if anyone found my book they would not know what they meant.

Do you ever forget your passwords?


I am keeping my passwords in a little notebook.I t is better this way,so I can be sure,if I'm foregetting,I can find them in my notebook.

No I never forget my password because I have only one username and one password for all my sites.

I am doing the same. Since some of the site requires numbers, others also requires symbols, i cannot sync them all. So I choose to reset my password before it reach 3 wrong attemps.

I always forget my password when I was young. In order to prevent this kind of problem, I always use the same password for all the sites I registered. The chance of getting hacked is high but I can't help it but to just use the same passwords for all of my accounts.

Yes....this used to happen to me every now and then. Then I started using the same password everywhere. This helped me to save a lot of time in recovering the passwords.

I lost my Steemit password which is a big no no. If you do that with them you cannot get it back so I had to start a new account with a different email. 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 :?
