1. Write down your passwords
Ok, this may seem like a lot of work, but trust us it works. If you have a hard time remembering all your passwords, simply writing them down in a small jotter you always carry with you, or neatly saving them in your phone’s using a Notes app, can go a long way.
We recommend a Notes app simply because it is easier to copy and paste and accessible at any time.
2. Use Password Managers
Tech has made life easy, and when it comes to passwords, even easier! If you don’t like the idea of noting your passwords, simply make use of a password manager. Password managers are applications that allow you to stores passwords and retrieve them at any time, just like Google Password Manager.
All you have to do is create a master password only you can remember as your password to your password manager. Whenever you create an account doing any online activity, simply store your login details in your password manager. You can download a password management app from Google PlayStore or AppStore.
3. Re-use passwords on similar web activities
Yes, we agree that it is wrong to use a password more than once, but it’s actually easier to remember a password is you are using it to secure two or three online accounts that are related. We are talking about using one password for your emails (maximum of three), one password for your social media accounts (max of three), etc.
When you use one password on related web activities, it is easier to remember. However, never use a password for more than three related web accounts. When it comes to online payments, banking, and wallets, etc, never reuse a password!
So what do you do when you lose or forget your VTpass password? The answer is to simply reset your password! That easy. You cannot retrieve a lost or forgotten VTpass password, but you can always reset it to a password you can remember.
To reset your VTpass password, follow these steps;
