How many sites do you visit regularly? How many times do you repeat the process of inputting username and password? Are you a regular visitor of “Forget your password?” link or you vehemently deny, saying you always remember all your passwords because they are all the same or follow the same pattern?
I Can Not Remember Passwords
You might say, “Are you kidding me, or you’re plainly a moron?” Yes, I probably am. During my early ages with internet, services offered were not that many and diverse like todays. I mainly used internet to check my email, hence remembering password was not a problem because I apparently used single password (or two for my other account).
Internet evolves, applications are built. New sites emerge everyday. I read news and article about new technology especially on websites and web apps. Another Joe said site A was cool because it offered yada-yada service. I dropped a visit, took a demo, and was eager to use the service offered. But it’s not free even it’s free (or it’s free with limitation if money is the term), i should be authenticated and authorized to use the service, hence registration (+payment) and another username-password pair.
After years, I found out that I had collected hundreds of username-password pairs. Hundreds? Yes, for sure. Credentials for e-payment should be different with the ones used in forums, emails, or other less critical service. Unfortunately,remembering which pair to be used in a site was and is always PITA. After being a regular patient of “Forget your password?”, I decided to organize login credentials so that I would never forget and could easily find out the username/password for a website/service.
