Lost my password again!

Updated November 2016 : I'm genuinely surrounded by people who can't remember passwords, they have so many and have been told by anyone with half a clue to make the password complicated. The trouble is that means they are hard to remember especially if you have 20 or 30 passwords. sounds a lot? well think about it, email, social media, file sharing, news reader, shopping sites, your probably at 2 by now aren't you? and that's without phone apps. My solution is LastPass its a browser plugin. i have a premium (the premein account is now free do you can use it accross all devices) account this year for the first time and its not without its issues on mobile devices but in the 4 months i've had it its improved tremendously. on the desktop which is the free part it just works all the time so it may have got better but its so good i didn't notice. its a secure PW manager and has a whole page dedicated to telling you how secure. It's simple to use you login with your one password a nice secure one unused anywhere else online, and when you sign in to an account it pops up with a remember the site dialogue or if its remembered it already a little * and a number count if there are multiple logins, maybe you have 3 Facebook accounts.. but remember if you lose your one password there is no reset LastPass doesn't know your password only you do. that's the whole point. so secure only you know it. Here is an article on several of the most popular in april 2014 http://uk.pcmag.com/password-managers-products/4296/guide/the-best-passw... www.Lastpass.com
