Using notes folder to store login/passwords

Listen to this tip using a RealMedia player Listen to this Tip

Lots of Web sites require you to register with a login ID and password to access valuable features or content. And if you’re like me you’ve registered yourself at who-knows-how-many Web sites. The problem is that it’s impossible to remember all those logins and passwords. Here’s a simple solution if you use Microsoft Outlook. You’ll notice that Outlook has a little notes folder that kinda works like an electronic postit note. Every time you create a new login and password, copy that information into a new note along with the Web site address and a brief comment. If you ever forget that login and password combination just right click on the notes icon and do a search. Outlook will quickly find the answer for you and off you go. Save those valuable brain cells for remembering important things like your anniversary, not your Yahoo password.
