How do you keep track of your internet passwords?

I am seriously surprised at the enormous amount of number and letter combinations I can remember to access my favorite websites and online services. Stamps, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, WordPress, HootSuite, Yahoo!, MyNook… and the list goes ON AND ON!

Some request a capital letter and a number, others BEG you to include a “special character” …uhh like in a TV show? I pick Dwight from The Office. Oh, you mean one of these !@#$%^&*()_ 

I once entered a password and it was all like “You changed that a while ago, remember?” … so they keep track of my current password AND my past passwords. Dude, that was way back when I was into Pokemon.

On top of that, I have to remember my usernames. I try to keep it pretty constant, but every once in a while, someone takes my very unique name that I use everywhere. I pretty much make a face like this when I see that:Confused and Disappointed

So naturally I need to check to see if the person who owns that account is worthy of the username, and most of the time they haven’t logged on since 2002. C’mon, people. Remember my previous post on usernames? Mega lame.

Thank you so much for your current submissions! You guys ROCK. Let’s keep it going, we have a few more days. From my previous post:

Instead of giving general advice that you can find in a free magazine at your taco stand, let’s hear some stories from real people in order to give hope to others who are searching and find it impossible to find somebody during these times as we approach a Hallmark holiday. I’d like you to:

  1. Share the story of how you met someone special. Type it up, it can be as long or as short as you want.
  2. Submit it on this website via a comment, the “Submit” page on the top of this website, or on your own blog and share the link on here.
  3. Read your own story along with the stories of other people on a story post to be published this upcoming Friday morning.

  1. Everytime I log on at Amazon, I ask for a new password. Crazy, isn’t it? I really should write it down, but am too lazy .

  2. I use to work in a dispatch office for UPS- we had to change the passwords on our email and two different software programs monthly. And it not only remembered your password, but would not all you to reuse portions of the old one. Passwords rock.

  3. I use lastpass. which is an addon on firefox or chrome. I even have it installed int he ipad. I only have to remember the master password and I have managed to not need to remember any other password than the Master one.

  4. I use the old fashioned method of writing them all down. Of course I have Scrappy to guard the list… 😉

  5. Many phone carriers lock their phones to their network only.
    Prices in phones drop all the time as technology advances.
    Werewolves are one of the best new supernatural options – tied with witches, in my opinion – plus they can learn alchemy
    and become fortune tellers like everyone else.

  6. I’m not sure exactly why but this web site
    is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem
    on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
