Too... Many... Passwords...
Eh, I'm registered at so many sites, I can't
even count them all. I'm constantly clicking the
"lost password?" link on all of them. A lot of
the time I can't remember my password or
my login-name... I remember them for the imporant
sites (cprog, flashdad, hotmail), but there are
still alot that I don't. I think I've registered
at Gamespot 5 times because my email addy has
changed, but I couldn't remember my log/pass :)
Anybody else have this problem?
Whatever happened to the facade of security?
I think what worries me the most is that if they can e-mail me my password from a site then they are able to retrieve it themselves. The passwords we type in must be stored in a retrievable form as opposed to one-way encryption.
I know sites could store it on the side at join-time anyway, but this is a little blatant for my liking.... beware if you use the same passwords / themes for ANYTHING.
