Passwords!!! Oy Vey!

passwords

Do you have Password rage?

The frustration with Passwords, is real and has become a level playing field with beginner computer users as well as advanced wizards.

Unfortunately we all have to remember them in some fashion.

And lately there are several ways to keep track of them:

  1. We can write them down on a legal pad. And cover the paper with a plastic sleeve.
  2. They sell little black Password keeper books to keep them safe.
  3. There are several available apps, but you must remember the master password.

My students recommend 1Password – because it has little pretty icons and keeps things organized.

I myself, keep my Passwords organized in iPhone’s Notes App because it is already syncing in iCloud and available on all my devices.

I always tell my students… whatever formula works for you, use that and remember to bring your Passwords with you when using your mobile devices.

  1. Hi Jennifer!
    Great to hear from you!
    You can copy and paste them into your Excel app on your iPhone, sort them alphabetically and then copy and paste them back into the Notes app! Voila – your passwords are alphabetical! Yay!

  2. I do the same thing… keep them in the iPhone Notes app. I guess the real pain with that is that you have to organize them manually, if you want them in alphabetical order. But it has worked for me for several years!
