Can I write down my password?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 06 Jan 2010

Most places suggest that you try to commit a password to memory rather than writing it down. This is because if someone finds your password then the account is compromised.

If you do feel that you must write the password down because you simply can't remember them, then two options are firstly not to write what the code is for (or just write the first letter if you need a reminder) so that it isn't obvious to someone who finds it what it is for.

The second idea is to write it down encoded - perhaps simply in reverse or even better transpose the letters using some sort of cipher.
