Hey Paul!

Great article! It's just difficult trying to
remember 10 or 15 different passwords for all of the various sites that
we have out there.  Creating separate, strong passwords for all of your
sites is doable if you use a secure password manager like Mitto.
(http://mitto.com). Some of the key benefits to using Mitto include
having
automatic one-click logins, secure access to your passwords from any
computer, unlimited password storage, and
knowing that you will never have to forget your passwords again!

I hope you get a chance to check it out.

Thanks!

BTW on my way to work today I heard Smokey Bear on the AM radio talking about how 99% of all forest fires are caused by humans. This means that at least 1% of all forest fires are caused by careless smoking bears and other forest dwelling animals.

You mean there are 2 thirds of everyone that don't use the same password for everything? Freaks... I can't believe there are that many freaks out there. Man... Thanks for the info.

Yes the sheer number of usernames and passwords has become insane.  For anyone who spends much time online or who frequents many different types of websites, it's feasible to have dozens of usernames and passwords.  Using a different username and password for every login is pretty daunting for most.

I split up the sites I use with logins and passwords by how important the information they contain may be.  I guess basically I have them divided up into five groups:

1. Financial such as banking

2. Non-financial site but with bill pay information

3. Forums

4. Online game accounts

5. Email

I don't change my passwords as often as I should but I generally change them at least once a year.  I also do use a password manager or Firefox's built in one.  These help greatly with most sites.

Too many websites, Too many passwords. Keeping up with all the passwords is a job in itself. I admit that I use the same password and username for all websites a hacker cannot use to harm me "financially". For all others I use different usernames and passwords. For example this site cannot be use to harm me financially while ebay website can. So I use my common user name and password for this site while I have a different username and password for my ebay, differents ones for my banks and so on. I do the same for my e-mail addresses (Thanks google!)
