I may have to. I just tried to reply to a Marketplace ad to see if the item was still available, but no joy. Not to be too nubish, but how do you send a PM? I'm sure I can figure it out, but a shove in the right direction may save some time. Thanks for the tip. K54

"Keep losing my sign on info"

That's why I have a password book in the drawer of the desk the computer sits on. How anyone can off hand remember all the BS passwords for all the different sites is beyond me. Unless you use the same password for everything.

Sad to admit it, but I generally fall into the category described in your last sentence. If they get one, they have most.

I use a password manager. It is convenient and the best way to avoid the one or two passwords issue. My Firefox browser has a free one - as does my Kaspersky security, but I have used the free LastPass https://www.lastpass.com/ for at least 6 years now with no issues.

My strategy is rotate a character or two between all my passwords so theyíre close but not exactly the same. Also use either 3 or 4 random words or a unique phrase-itís easier to remember and more complex than shorter passwords with random letters numbers and special characters. And for sites where I need good security (forums like this I donít care about nearly as much) I set up two factor authentication. It adds a lot more security than throwing in an extra ! in the password.
