    How many passwords do you have?

    Between home and work I have a shedload of passwords for various computer systems. How about you?

    I used to have one password for everything, but my Yahoo e-mail was one of those recently hacked, so I had to change everything. Some accounts that I had signed up for with my Yahoo e-mail, like Twitter, made me change their passwords, too. They're all similar now, but not exactly alike and there are maybe 40 of them all together.

      I have a secret word pad file with cryptic messages to make me remember them! I can't even remember my own phone number! smile

    Four. I switch them around and keep them written down in a safe and memorable area.

      That sounds manageable. Thanks for answering.

    I use a simple system for which to remember and create passwords for various websites. First, I thought up a word for each letter of the alphabet. For example, the letter "s" might be "spiritual" or "somewhat".

    Then, I take last letter of each site (before the .com/.org/.gov etc) and remember the word i thought up. Hubpages.com would be "s". so i type perhaps spiritual for the first part of my password.

    I then count the number of letters between the two dots. www.hubpages.com would have 8 letters, so at the end of the word i add the number 3 times. In this example, it would be spiritual888.

    Not sure if it's applicable to computer systems, but it's helps me on various websites.

    Don't try to guess my password,  because I didn't use this system for this site, nor on any other big sites like facebook or twitter... :-)
