I Always Forget Passwords

Whatever I do, I keep forgetting my passwords 699 People

    I always start with the best of intentions!

    Yes. I have a notebook,with all my passswords I'm on my sixth notebook,and finding the ones in the others seems impossible.A phone number,a doodle,some reminder to self all surround the vital password.And then theres the password,itself,using the same password is frowned upon...

    I Finally Had to Get An Address Book

    I write my passwords in it.  I change them often.  The sites are in alphabetical order so my passwords aren't hard to lookup.

    I ALWAYS forget passwords!

    I try to make them all the same, that way I can just remember one of them, but half the time, if I don't write it down, I'll forget what the password is, so I have a little notebook on my desk that tells me what my passwords are.

    My Computer Remembers ... But I Don't

    My computer always remembers my passwords, so whenever I am on a different computer I can't get on anything that requires a password because I have no idea what my password is. And the sad thing is I usually rotate variations of three different ones and I still can't figure it...

    My Work Passwords Always Forgotten First

    I have to change some of them all the time because I forget.  Those are the ones I use less often. Its a pain to keep up.  Mostly I try to keep them all the same but there is a few that are smart and do not allow the same one, but I have tricked it by making that one...

    Why Do They Expire

    What I dont understand is why all of the passwords at my job expire in like 3 week spans, but never at the same time? So then I end up changing one password so that is different than all the others I use, and when I finally need to use that application I dont remember if it was...

    That's the reason why I barely go on Instagram.

    ..I always forget my password! Sure I know my username, but my password manages to run off in the depths of my mind. Then I'm too lazy to reset it. The last time I've been on there was last summer before school started.

    WTF Was That Password Again?

    Sometimes I will try like 10 diff passwords and I still can't figure out the one I used. Usually that's a sign that it wasn't one I made up, and password retrieval is very useful in that instance.

    GEE maybe because I have about a million different programs and the ones at work don't let you repeat. Not to mention that there are those that are all numeric and those that are alpha numeric or a symbol. Of course my favorite mix up is when I run into work and punch in my ATM...

    I only have 2 passwords that I use, and that's because I know I will forget them if I have too many. The only problem with that is, if someone guesses one of the passwords right, then they could probably get into half of the things that I use, so I just make sure I don't tell...
