If it is true we are living in a portal world, the question quickly becomes how am I supposed to remember all these usernames and passwords? The only secure password may be the one you don’t remember. It is not unusual to hear from people that login to 100 different sites at some point throughout the year. For most people the question boils down to the password since most usernames are typically email addresses or first initial and last name. There are all sorts of different methods that individuals employ to remember passwords. The most common is to use the same password for all their accounts or a combination of two or three. Others create a handwritten list and keep it in a “safe place” in their office desk, wallet, or purse. Another method is creating a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and storing it on a PC, tablet, or online document service such as Microsoft OneDrive. There are also many technological options that include the names Roboform, Dashlane, 1Password, PasswordSafe, and KeePass. Some of these applications also have Windows, Android, and iPhone options. With more and more organizations moving towards online portals to give customers additional self-serve capabilities, tackling a method of keeping track of all these passwords is something we all need. Either that or we become familiar with the “Forgot Password” button which this comedian hilariously explains. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tJ-NSPES9Y#t=39
