    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.
