Yes. The only annoying part is moving all your passwords to the vault.


Software is easy to use though not to mention it makes life so much easier not having to remember 40 different passwords.

Okay, first of all don't knock yourself about because of this. You are not alone.

You haven't mentioned taking any medication. Doing so might be the cause of your memory problems. Do you find other 'brain' functions to be impeded or slowed down?

I myself suffer - and it can be greatly embarassing. There was a time I simply avoided conversations as I would literally forget words mid-sentence. I don't just forget things either. I am generally slower than I was before medication. I actually feel as though my IQ has dropped as a result. Particularly difficult are simple math functions and anything related to handling numbers.

This has resulted in some rather humiliating situations especially at my work. I am unable to perform simple athrimetic in my head and this has lead I am sure to my co-workers assuming I am dumb. When told I was coing to be trained at work for cash I had to admit to my supervisor why this would not be a good idea. It was horrible to tell her I was unable to do so.

With the exception of work though I have come to the realisation I was missing out on a great deal by avoiding situations (like conversations) where such difficulties arise. So I go ahead and risk them occuring. When they happen, I offer up the reason ("sorry, but my medication is making me forget"). People seem to then understand. I also challenge my brain daily with spending a little time doing puzzles like logic and sudoku.

My own humiliating horror? Shaking and tremmoring.

What I did was giving up on it - I just click "forgot password" link and change password using multi-factor authentication. It is very fast, secure, and beats remembering or using extra software (for me).

I do that, too. All accounts are registered using an email, and you have to remember the password of the email. All other passwords can be reset from the email after pressing the "Forgot password?" link and provide your email address. Even the email's password can be recovered using the phone number if you provided it. Some email domains require a phone number.

Also...I keep a little black book with a list of my passwords. I make complicated ones. Whenever I change one I put the date of when I changed it. It helps.

Passwords are IMPOSSIBLE to remember. And I'm trying to remember them on multiple devices at home and at work. Too many requirements. I just want to use one password for everything. I've had to do a total of 15 resets today because I can't remember. I'm frightened because this can't happen to someone my age.

If you feel frightened, talk to a neurologist - tell him or her about the 15 resets in one day.

For passwords, I have them in my iPhone and I use my fingerprint. No one else can access my stuff then and I don't have to remember everything.
