5 Ways to NEVER Forget Your Password Again

Here's how to make it a thing of the past...

There's nothing more irritating that entering your username and password into a website, whether you want to check Facebook, read your emails or even shop online, only to see an error message and be told you've actually entered the wrong password. It's not surprising when a quarter of Brits admit they have around 30 different online passwords – but can only remember five of them.

5 easy ways you can avoid the frustration of forgetting your password

1. Use a random word of phrase but make it easier to recall by adding on a word for the website you're using. For example if you use the password 'purple' for internet banking you could use 'Purple-bank'.

2. Take a lyric from your favourite song and use the first letter of each word to create the password. So 'I want to break free from your lies' would be IWTBFFYL although for some sites you'll be required to introduce both lower and uppercase letters and numbers into the password too.

3. If you must keep a copy of your passwords, write them down on a piece of paper and keep them in a safe place. Never store them in online storage that could potentially be accessed by hackers.

4. Consider using a Password Manager. We rate Last Pass, which will create and remember passwords for you – all you need to do is log in to the software, meaning you'll just have one password to remember.

5. Use your fingerprint to unlock your phone, rather than a password or PIN. Check and see if you smartphone has a fingerprint sensor (iPhones from 5S onwards and high-end Android smartphones tend to have one) and follow the instructions in settings to activate it.
