Here’s a neat little trick I learnt a long time ago and it’s allowed me to have different passwords for different sites for as long as I can remember.

Step 1) Pick one alphanumeric password you know you will always remember. Something like: “tuca3212”

Step 2) From now on just remember that above alphanumeric password and add the first 4 letters of every sites name before (or after) that above password.

An example:

pswdpic

Say you were logging into Twitter.

Your password would be:

Twittuca3212

If you were logging into Friendfeed.

Your password would be:

Frietuca3212.
