How do you manage your passwords to ensure they are secure, and you do not forget them?

My brain.

Hasn't failed me yet.

If I ever get Alzheimer's I will be screwed though...

Recently started using PasswordSafe. Mainly because it's free and doesn't store your passwords on a server online.

my brain - i have two words i use as passwords - change them when they request changing. With caps letters numbers and other characters - !@#$%^&*()
Otherwise - just use the lost password reset route should you forget them.

I write them on small pieces of paper, screw them up and keep them in my underwear.

have one password as a base, and then append the first letter of the site the password is for. That way you don't have to remember much, and if your password is leaked and stored to a database, it wont work on most other sites.

1Password.

Was one of the few apps that was worth the purchase price.

Google Passwords.

If I was still on a Mac I would use iCloud Keychain instead.

I have this little black book... it's luddite and offline :D

All passwords distinctly different and scrambled - so no hope in hell of remembering them from one site to another.
