Passwords! Remembering them all turns out to be a little tricky. Even remembering the sites and accounts we need them for is a real challenge.
The other day, I typed my bank password into my Facebook account login field, my e-mail password into my upload login field for this website, and my shoe size into a field belonging to a subscription form, for some useless newsletter. The problem: That field was asking for my age, but my shoe size is substantially lower than that.
As an expat, I use passwords related to the country I live in, for reasons having to do with respect for that country. My online banking password is “banichka1!!?”, my Facebook password is “pirzhenikartofi22” and my porn site password is “sickflick69”. For Zamunda, I have thought of something really special: “nyamakak100”.
