lol, thanks for the answer, but i don't think that's a good method. If someone happen to know one of your psd, and they try to use that for evil, then bad things might happen....^^

i agree if you use only one password then your probably going to have someone else using your accounts besides you

how do u get the password manager on browser
Report as
You just have to sign in in your browser and when it will ask ;do you want to save password'....click on yes option and it'd be saved automatically.Your browser will manage passwords on it's own.If you want to remove them then just do it in settings.

Keep them on a piece or paper or make a password something memorable. Also make passwords that are relevant to your everyday life.

It is a pain in the butt--consolidate your passwords, write them down, put them into your phone, computer,wallet, purse, have them tattooed on your arm-heck I had so many that i printed them out & then laminated them

I have one pin number, one password, one user name, and I use the same 3 answers for all security questions. There are a few exceptions, which are noted in both a physical and virtual notebook.

I'm in the military, when you have classified information with top secret & above the passwords become lengthy & confusing especially if they're changing constantly. Toss in your regular. mil stuff, it has to be different, & it is made impossible because of the addition or deletion of certain letters,numbers & symbols. My civilian stuff isn't to bad & I try to keep it constant, but that too can be a hassle-especially when my wife changes things up & forgets to tell me

Use a password manager. I recommend Clipperz, personally. It also has a good random password generator.

Use the same first 5-7 characters an old phone number no one knows. List them. Keep the list in a place only you know where. e.g, 123-4567.090

I only have 3 passwords that I use. All have to do with a certain topic/thing as to remember them easily. I use one of the three passwords based upon character count, how protected I want my account, etc. I suggest 2-3 passwords that are easy to remember. It makes managing so much easier.

Create an easy for you to remember base like this: the first initials of a person or favorite song and your favorite number. So if your best friend was named Bob Frank Smith and your favorite number is 13 it would be BFS13, then a symbol for extra security, any symbol you can easily remember, I will use the number sign (#) This is the part that is the same for every password: BFS13#. Then the next two represent the specific location or business it is for. So Wells Fargo would be WF and your home computer would be HC, office computer OC. The finished passwords would look like this: BFS13#WF, BFS13#HC, BFS13#OC. The same password yet personalized for the specific need.

Make a Microsoft Office or Notepad document with the passwords, and what they are used for, then put the document on a flash drive and keep it in a safe spot.

First of never make the same password for all of your things you access, because once that password is taken from you then you might have to change a lot of passwords. Write all your accounts display name and password on a notebook that you keep secure and to yourself only.

i try not to use passwords. unless it is required. i don't necessraly go for complex password as i tend to forget them. If somebody whant to break in my stuff they will deactivate my password with a software that is going to access the SAM hives and reset the password or disable it. what ever the os or the software.. (A os is a software btw.) SAM = Security Account Menagment.

To me password are reserved for people that live in fear and need to reasure themselves that their false life information need to be protected against all. Especialy from themselves... As Passwords are only a false sense of protection.

Hackers and computer geeks do not need to woory about password. they use softwares that find it for them.

Unfortunately, you are correct about hackers using software to bypass your password, but this is not all that common. At least passwords create another barrier from hackers accessing our information, instead of having our information hanging out there, for just anyone to grab! : D

I use 1 password. It is extremely complex with numbers and both upper and lower case letters. Each part of that password means something to me, but would seem random to anyone else.

Example.
Dad's birthday is 1/1/1960
Mom's middle name is Bella
Dog's name is Steve

Take D for Dad. 1160 for his birthday.
M for Mom. bel is the first three letters of her middle name.
Steve

Password: D1160MbelSteve

The easiest way remember all of your passwords and still keep it somewhat secure (better than having the *same* password for everything anyways) is to think of 3-4 numbers that you can remember easily and put them at the beginning or end of each password, along with something from each site/game that will remind you what the password is.

Example: Google E-mail: 5657gmail (or: gmail5657)

Then for the name site/game make it: 5757game, or whatever.. anyways, that's what I try to tell people. Having a series of numbers and a hint to yourself to remind you is a good way to have lots of different passwords and remember them.

Also, finding a word you like and adding numbers in instead of letters, example:

chacha -> ch4ch4


Good luck.

The smartest thing anyone can do for a lot of passwords is to go to "Roboform.com" & download it to your computer. It is so simple to use & very safe. One should never use all the same passwords. This is not free, but worth every cent you spend. I believe it is $29.95. You won't believe how you ever got along without it. It is the greatest.
