Used to be I only had two or three passwords that I would use on things, and life was simple. Now there are new requirements on passwords, so my stand-bys don't work. Which means I make new ones. And promptly forget them. I have forgotten my Equifax password every time I go to open it, so I then have to reset it, which means a new password. Which I will forget anyhow. My work computer requires a new password every 3 months, on several different systems. My phone requires a password if I want to buy apps. I set Ranger up an Amazon wish list and forgot his password. I recently forgot my on line bank password...
I know it's safer to have different passwords, but really, is having to ask for a new one all the time any safer? Thank goodness for cookies*, which of course aren't the best idea either. The computer automatically fills things in. Except of course when you change computers. A long time ago I set up a website and a business (can it be called a business if nothing ever became of it?), and I have since forgotten the password. I am pretty sure I gave it to my brother, since I gave him free reign on fiddling with the web design/coding.
It's just a good thing that I don't need a password to get into my home, or I'd be sleeping in the hallway.
*an aside here- the first time I encountered computer cookies, I was in a computer lab in college. Someone had cleared every cookie on the computer I sat down at, so every new web page asked if I would like a cookie. "Would you like a cookie?" it would prompt. I would look around the room for a plate of chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies, and not seeing any would select no. The next time I selected yes to see if someone popped up with cookies. Eventually I moved to another computer. And you know when I was done and left I went right to the store and bought some cookies.
