I'm not really a complainer, BUT, there's another thing that really annoys me!
Ever have trouble remembering your user name and password? OMG. WHY do they have to all require different configurations? Why won't ONE universal name and password work?
I can't tell you how many times I have tried and tried different variations on the same theme, hoping I'll be able to log onto some site or other.
I wish someone would invent some way to remember all that info...Someone will probably tell me, "there's an app for that!"... VBG
With that, I'm heading back to my bindings... only a couple more to go. UGH.
Thanks for everyone's comments. I must admit I don't care for basting much either. Was fun to read what everyone else dislikes!!
Have a great Tuesday.
Love to you all,
My Mac has a built-in application called "Keychain Access" which allows me to enter all my various accounts with logins and passwords, and then I can always check when I need to. Maybe your hard drive has something similar.ReplyDelete
I could have written this post!!! Oh my gosh, I am right there with you on this issue. Please let me know if you find the magic solution!ReplyDelete
I'm with you on the password issue - I finally made a list for myself on my computer and printed it out and keep it under my lap top -ReplyDelete
ridiculous! Is it wrong that I love doing bindings?
I read about an easy way to remember passwords, I tried it, and it works great for me. They want caps, numbers, more than 6 characters......yeesh! I picked an important date and then use the initials of the site at the end. So, let's say I want to log in to my hotmail acct. October7HM. My Google acct. October7GA. My bank account. October7FB. Etc. I NEVER forget my passwords and I fulfill all of the requirements!!ReplyDelete
If you are on a Mac then the app 1Password is the way to go. It will sync with your iPad and iPhone too. Can't sing it's praises high enough! Saves my bacon.ReplyDelete
Do I need to sign up to do the sow along? I can look at the first several blocks but then towards the end it says I don't have Blogger access. thanks. KathleenReplyDelete
Several years ago I bought a new alphabetical address book. I've recycled the old one by using it exclusively for pass words. Taking out addressess that were old, old, old, people I hadn't heard from in years, I found there were plenty of fresh pages. DH has now begun to use it as he couldn't keep up with his passwords either. The book stays right with our twin desk within easy reach of both of us. ♥ Love it! ♥ So easy to keep up with now.♥ReplyDelete
Apple now wants to make me change my password and I can never remember my "new" one!! Is my iTunes account really that important!? Very annoying!ReplyDelete
I hate passwords also. You think you come up with one but then you register somewhere and The One is not long enough or needs a number in it! I hate it. I got an address book and write them down in that.ReplyDelete
How about LastPass - go to lastpass.com? It has a free version and paid versions. Installs in your browser (on Windows anyway, I don't know about Apple). You can also get to your password vault on the internet when using a computer as a guest. I'm pretty sure it has mobile apps but they might be for the paid version.ReplyDelete
Don't know bout an app for that, but I do have a rolodex for that! Don't trust storing them on my puter in case it's hacked or stolen. Also can write in answers to security questions or alternate email addresses set up for that account.ReplyDelete
I have needed such info, for example, when my son's facebook account was shut down for no obvious reason & when his WOW account was STOLEN with MY credit card info attached to it.
Yes some things are still best on paper to me!
I have a way to store my passwords--but I don't think I'll announce it online. : )ReplyDelete
We have a 5 page list of our passwords and that doesn't include all of them because I use the same one for some of the site I go to. That is ridiculous! I need to look into some of the apps mentioned above.ReplyDelete
I use LastPass--all I have to remember is the master password. The "vault" in this free program stores all my passwords, no matter how difficult a site might require one to be. Try lastpass.com. :-)ReplyDelete
I agree with MaryT --1password is the way to go. I use it on my iPad & iPhone and have a pc version. Using Dropbox, they all sync up together and I only have to remember one password. It's made life so much easier.......ReplyDelete
You are not alone! All those passwords. I write them down. Put them in a safe place which is really safe cause even I can't find the list. That is annoying also. :)ReplyDelete
I also keep an old fashion, maintained by hand, rolodex by my computer. It is the only method I completely trust and is used often.ReplyDelete
