NO, perhaps and yet. NO!

I have three levels of passwords ok four.
Level 1 - the password that I throw away. I have like three of these depending upon my mood. My kids know them. Friends know them. I don't really give them out. But I don't care if Google knows them. For when I login to stupid areas of the web. Places that want a password that really I am like why???

Level 2 - Semi secure. I don't let Google or anyone know these. They follow a basic formula that I have in my head. I can "guess" what my password user combination is just based upon which website I am at. for instance. Facebook has a combination of fb in the string of characters that I use. My son and Daughter have figured out this code. The dear wife has not. funny that.

Level 3 - Work password. Different than anything else. not related. Only in my head.

Level 4 - Banking only the Dear Lady knows this password. Updated on occasion. Written down in an envelop stored in the gun safe that only my lady and I know the combination.

I should add this works for me. Also, since I own my own domain. I frequently signup with email addresses off the top of my head like. thisbusinessname@mydomain.com For example bestbuy@mydomain.com I can then easily tell who is selling my information. And I always use the level 1 passwords at that time.

I never really have to write down a password this way. except for Level 4.
To err is human to really elephant it up you need a computer
