You are definitely not alone! According to a recent study, 38 per cent of adults think it would be easier to solve world peace than to remember all of their passwords. In the same 2012 Online Registration and Password study, conducted by Harris Interactive, 37 per cent of American adult computer users, nearly two in five people, have had to ask for help on their user name or password for at least one website per month.

Pain of Forgetting Your Password

Passwords are like a lock for our digital lives. They allow us into banking, shopping, and social networking sites, and keep out identity thieves, hackers, cyber criminals and other people up to no good. However, forgetting your password means that you are locked out!

To combat this, many people resort to using just one password. Ofcom’s “Adults Media Use and Attitudes Report 2013” reports that 55 per cent of surveyed United Kingdom adult computer users used the same password for the majority, if not all, if their online accounts.

In order to not forget their passwords, computer users might choose something very basic. Lists of the worst passwords are published every so often. Thy almost always include the usual suspects: password, 123456, abc123, qwerty, 12345678, letmein, iloveyou … While these passwords are all easy to remember, they would not take long for a hacker to crack.

It is no wonder you forget passwords – you need so many. According to the 2012 Online Registration and Password study, 30 per cent have 10 or more passwords they need to remember. There are often passwords that you use on an almost daily basis, such as your online email account, baking site, Facebook, Twitter, and others. However, others like certain shopping sites, are not needed often and can easily be forgotten.

Most sites do allow you to reset your password by using links, hints or other options. If someone has access to your email account, such as on a shared computer, they can easily change your password. This gains them access to your account and can lock you out.
