    IL - why do you say it's my fault? I'm just a worker bee.

    Today's fun - I am allowed to write down my password and leave that paper at my desk.

    sorry, i should have said “ But it’s your fault.”

    ‘Cause it was always our fault in the eyes of IT.

    edited to add: Our IT crew would never “allow” anyone to post their password in an obvious place, and cant say I blame them, but having done it surreptitiously a few times,
    i am sympathetic.

    I also use keepass. My sister, who retired from a career in programming, focused on security, recommended it. It's shocking how many passwords I have. I have 146 different sites for which I have a password. Admittedly that also includes things like the website where I once, one time, purchased a downloadable music file, but still, 146 seems like a lot.

    I also like using a password manager because for important stuff, like bank websites, I use fake account verification answers. At one bank instead of mom's maiden name I use my cat's mother's first name, for instance. Details like that can be stored in a password manager. (needless to say, I have more than one backup of it because I'd be completely hosed if I lost the password manager and all those little details.)
