A recent survey found that the average IT user now has 21 passwords, with some heavy users having to keep track of as many as 70. Forty-nine percent write their passwords down, or store them in a file on their PC
If you think about every password you have, whether it be for a web based mail account(s), online gambling / banking / your local computer/ works password etc. etc. etc.
Do you use the same password in more than one place? I probably only have 10 which I use a lot, and most of these are the same,or some sort of variation on it
I got about 4 different ones. that i've used for years. and two usernames.
I think i'd find it hard to remember more than 5, especially if i didnt use them for a while.
I dont think having lots and having to keep them written down somewhere is very clever. Tho i got a folder on my yahoo mail for ones that get mailed to me. not important ones tho. webspace, online games, content providers.
i expect half of them dont work anymore since i've had my mail account for like 5 years at least.
