It seems that every website wants a password.  Do you use the same password for many sites or different ones for each site? Obviously, different passwords for banking, credit cards, etc.

Then, how can you manage (remember) them all.  We must have 100 – are the apps safe? If you use the app, do you keep a

backup on flash drive?

Kim,

You might want to watch Episode 67 of our What Does This Button Do? show where we discussed passwords at length. Just going thru the show notes will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about passwords!

There is NO easy answer. I use a pattern that I can remember but that is actually different for every website. Most experts in this field recommend Last Pass as a manager. I keep saying I’m going to use it, but never get around to it.
