Too many password to remember ....

Image

Meh!! So many passwords to remember these days.
I am getting forgetful if I do not use frequently.
Sometimes I wish retailers accept charges with a signature and an ID.
LIVE LONG and suffer ...

I have used several password management programs and found LastPass to be one of the best.

Read an interesting article recently, we are making passwords that are easier for computers to guess and harder for humans to remember. 8 random characters using lower/upper case and special characters? Taking less and less time for computers to brute force. How about a 21 character password you can remember??? Hitmewithyourbestsh0t Researchers are saying that a song lyric with a mixed in number is easier to remember and the longer passwords are harder to crack for computers.

Password - Howsecureismypassword.org
TakeMyBreathAway1 - 2 trillion years to crack
Shout,Shout,letitallout - 3 Septillion years to crack
Icantdrive55 - 2 thousand years to crack
YouvebeenThunderstruck - 45 Quintillion Years to crack
Hitmebaby1moretime - 145 Trillion Years to crack

I use this theory to set my passwords now and have no problem remembering them.

probably 1 character text emojis like this ✌ would be impenetrable to brute force dictionaries and people typing with keyboards. Can't guess what doesn't exist in your vocab! :D

The longer the phrase, the more mixed characters the better
Definitely one of the easier ways to remember oodles of passwords for oodles of Accounts
NoLooky@Bookie for example makes an excellent Indigo Account phrase password
Lol or one for an online gambling App

Setup a draft email to yourself in your email account and store passwords there. Then you can also access them elsewhere, providing of course you can remember your email password lol. I also used to do the notepad thing, but I also backed that up to my email, which was handy for when my computer crashed last spring. I like the idea of the song lyrics as above, but many sites also ask for symbols, and some also force you to change passwords on some type of frequent basis, so it's handy to have some reference of what those passwords are, and you also have to make sure you update that list when you update a password somewhere as well.

I am too finding it more difficult because some passwords require upper and lower + number but now some ask for special characters but some won't let you.

Also some places only you you enter 6 digits while other ask for minimum 8.

158 thousand years.


I still believe it's easier to remember these than some random 8 digit password....
