 I use a very simple code system. I use a combination of alpha, character and numeric and just change the last two or three letters.

Example:MT!0864ar  would be a typical password for active rain.

I just remember them.  Of course I also know my x's SSN number by heart and we've been divorced for 27 years. I can tell you the day I got my dog in 2008.  The first day my husband told me he loved me was 10/03/1998.  Yeah, I just remember all of them.

I have little variation in my standard password for different site. I used a password manager software for a while - and felt better but not using it anymore.

While I won't say what I do, I know that a lot of people used LastPass to store all their passwords so they would only need to remember one.  However, LastPass was hacked in June 2015 so it may not seeem or be so safe.

I don't Captain Wayne. That is really a dumb thing in this world, 99 passwords that all have to change at different times. I put them in a Word document.

Since you can not stay ahead of the hackers, I had to resort to a bullet proof system. Those hackers can not see what's on my office wall.

However, I don't need a lot of wall space to record 1234Password.

Apply keychain, it helps a lot saving time on lost passwords. Just make sure your password to your password is a good secure one haha.
