For whatever purposes, websites are requiring you to register and managing multiple accounts soon becomes a burden. Follow these tips and it'll all breeze away.
With the emergence of forums, social networking, and secure websites, managing usernames and passwords is down to a critical level. Handling multiple online accounts is becoming a huge burden because for whatever purposes, websites are requiring you to register. Whether it be paid or free, websites ask you to register to access even the simplest functionality they offer such as, making a comment.
You may not notice it at first, but if you stick around, you'll see how much pain it can be to organize multiple online accounts. To help ease up that burden, follow the listed multiple online account tips below.
1. Create a master password. Keeping a master password for multiple online accounts saves you the danger of forgetting your passwords. However you must also realize the risks. Master passwords follow one rule of complicacy--it should be easy enough to for you remember but hard enough that no one can guess it.
2. Create a dummy password. Your master password, though it may sound contradictive, will not be your only password. You will also have to come up with a dummy password while handling multiple online accounts. Instead of your master password, make up something like "password" or "123456789" and use it for untrusted websites. Stop denying that you have accounts on those creepy sites because everyone does. For full-proof safety, use a dummy password.
3. Create a primary email address. First you should decide if you are keeping your anonymity online or not. Either way, you should come up with a real sounding name, and not something robotic like mike0428, which, by the way, is too complicated to remember. If you have a generic name, try creating your master email address on unpopular email providers. Chances are, your name is not taken yet. Refrain from appending your email with numbers, don't use spaces, or even symbols. If that can't be helped, use a dash or underscore instead of spaces.
4. Create a dummy email address. Unless you wanted to lose your primary email address, and further complicate your multiple online account access, you better start liking dummies. You'll need a dummy email for untrusted websites that asks for your email. Use weird email providers for your dummy email, like email@example.com or something. Untrusted sites are most likely just going to spam your inbox anyway.
5. Primary email as log-in name or username. Eventually you will learn to love websites that allow you to log-in using your email address. You'll learn that they are lifesavers when it comes to managing multiple online accounts.
6. Use your email username as your master username. If websites require you a unique username, then use the one on your email. For instance, take "yourname" from "firstname.lastname@example.org"
7. Provide similar profile information on several websites, such as your display name, avatar, bio, hobbies, etc.
If you follow those tips you may never have to deal with forgotten passwords or lost accounts ever again. In a matter of time, the hassle in managing multiple online accounts will all just breeze away.
