I am sure I am not alone in hating all the passwords one has to remember these days. Every single site you use regularly seems to require registration. And then there is the dilemma – same password for everything? (easy to remember but not so secure) or different passwords for everything? (hard to remember but secure). Often they need to be upper and lower case and a mix of numbers and letters, and you cannot use one that you have previously used. I do most of my shopping online so the number of usernames and passwords I have to remember seems endless. In addition, my computer suggests strong passwords for me which are absolutely impossible to remember unless I use autofill, but that often does not sync to my phone. The extra pain in the butt these days is two-factor authentication, where I need to be near both my phone and computer when logging in. Thank goodness for Apple Keychain!

Curses to all the scammers, trolls, hackers and anyone else that make things suckier for regular people.
