How do you keep your passwords for internet websites?

I mean like internet banking and Amazon/Ebay accounts etc. I was just hoping for a bit of advice. Do you think I should use a book or something?

    Yes you can use books to store your important passwords but make sure it is kept in a very secured place.
    I use USB flash drive to store my, and encrypt it with bitlocker software which will prevent anyone from using it if for any reason i cannot find the flash drive. There are other free flash drive securer – if you decide to go down my route you can download this software for free from http://www.download.com

    I use a password protected Microsoft Excel spreedsheet. You put all your account names and passwords on a spreedsheet and then save the file to some external media (i.e. thumbdrive)……only catch is you have to make sure you keep up with the thumbdrive (store it in your sock drawer or somewhere you constantly would see it even if you forgot about. And most importantly remember the password for the spreedsheet. Better to have to remember just 1 vs. 20.

    Also it is wise to make sure you don’t save the file with names like “Passwords” or “Account Information”. I’d name it something like “Dieting Chart” or “Car Maint Schedule”. In case you ever happen to lose your thumbdrive.

    How about sports related names ie……….Race horses names / footballers from the past/ or cricketers or maybe old film stars …then add a few digits after the name you choose.
    Write them in a book in a coded version in case you forget them…..ie.
    botham 666 You would write in your book……
    Ripoff Bank…….bot…6.. ( just in case the wrong person looks in the book)
    They will stick in your mind……worst comes to the worst you click on “forgot password” and they will e-mail you a reminder.

    If it’s a pin code you need to remember then you can always “hide” it in a fake/made up telephone number in a address book. Write down a name to go with it as well.

    4510 as 0208 693 4510 or 07733345105, for instance.

    NEVER write down usernames and passwords together…

    I use Roboform (www.RoboForm.com) on PCs and 1Password on Macc. (Both being used in a commercial environment).

    Both of these are robust, safe utilities, which automatically pick up any login info, username, password, birthday or whatever a site wants.

    They are kept in a ‘data safe’ protected by a 168bit code. They also hold all the repetitive data you need, like name and address, d.o.b. They will generate a very safe password if you want for a new site.

    One usually keeps the data safe on a Raid 1 shadowset, or you can simply copy it to a USB key from time to time. SInce it cannot be read without your master password, it is VERY secure.

    Actually, what I do is I always use internet explorer, which is compatible with my fingerprint scanner. If you have one built into your computer, you can use it to protect all of your passwords, and once you enter the password into your finger-print protected password bank, if you go onto the website, all you have to do is swipe your finger and your computer will fill in the user name and password that you registered into the fingerprint scanner, so long as the fingerprint is the right one. However, if you don’t have one, this is what I would recommend. Get Microsoft Office One-note, which is included in Office Home and Student, both in the 2007 and 2003 versions. Create a notebook section in the program, and password protect it with one master password, and drill that password into your brain. Type in all of your website passwords there and always close it when you are not using it. This way, you will only need one password that you MUST DRILL INTO YOUR BRAIN!!! to access all of them.

    Just remember one password and forget all. You can use KeePass (a free, open source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager ) to store all your passwords and can categorize them like website passwords, banking passwords, email passwords and others.

    Can export password details to keep back up in other place, so that even if you forget at least you can get them back. Very very secure and best of all its free.

    Try it and hope it will make life easier by reducing load on your gray cells to memorize various passwords.
