I have nicknames for all of my many passwords so I note the nickname rather than the real thing.

It took me ages to find this on my new phone. In my case I wanted to turn it on. Usually I just find it easier googling these things. There's always a you tube video explaining it all. It was really easy to transfer everything from my old phone to new because they were the same brand I could just download an app. It did take me a fair bit of research on google to find out about the app though.

I used to have just the one too OGF until my facebook was hacked. Now I have a wide selection which would be impossible for anyone to guess or cross reference. Some sites these days have such ridiculous requests for this that and the other too. I closed a bank account because I found it impossible to use their mad cap online security system.

Re: I hate, detest, loathe modern technology! Rant alert.

Oooh I love technology and can’t get enough of it. As for passwords, mine are in an address book. I use a wide variety of web sites, etc., so need to have them written down in a handy recognisable place.

When I unpack (most of the) boxes in the rental, I need to go through my own collection of cables and leads, to see what fits what.

If you have a PC, try installing KeePass, it's a very secure password storage program where you can store all of your passwords. It also has a password generator if you can't think of any yourself. You only need to remember one password, the one needed to open the program.

Re: I hate, detest, loathe modern technology! Rant alert.

My next telephone will be Mrs mart's old one. The one I have at present used to be hers. It's PAYG but I'm thinking about getting a contract for the next cast-off.

Regarding passwords, some people aren't keen on online password managers but I have used LastPass for a number of years without issue. It fills in passwords automatically. There are a few financial sites where I prefer not to use LastPass but it is good for most purposes.
