Remembering Passwords

Use a phrase or an abbreviation of a phrase that you can remember and a series of numbers for your password. For example "i am crazy about dogs" can be "iacad" then add numbers and a special character at the end.


When you write down your passwords, you only need to write down a reminder of what numbers or characters you used instead of the whole password. For instance, if my password was "I am crazy about dogs 1234", you could write: "iacad1234" or "i*1234" (with the * representing the remainder of the phrase if you prefer to write out the entire phrase) as a reminder.

Always use small case letters if possible so you don't forget the case, but if you have to capitalize one letter, you would include that as your reminder. For example, if a site requires a capital letter and a special character, you would use "Iamcrazyaboutdogs1234*". Your reminder would be "Iacad1234*" with the appropriate letter capitalized and the special character included. You can use the same phrase and change numbers and/or characters depending on the account requirements.

Nice idea! I like to use a phrase that show s how I feel about the competition. My roku password makes a statement about how I relate to cable,email is about snail mail, etc. If I have to use numbers, I make it spell a short word.

I told my grandsons to write all their account numbers backwards. If someone has their little cheat sheet, they won't be able to use it.

The mini 3/1.00 composition books you get at the dollar tree are perfect for keeping track.
