That's awesome that you can remember all your credentials. I don't think it's a matter of committing them to memory though, it's a matter of having them in a place that is accessible to you so that if you need to lock someone out, grant someone else access or access the account on your own, you can and business owners don't have to ask someone else for permission to get into their own technology.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

This is why I remember ALL my passwords and login account information. I do not let IE remember it for me nor do I think Tom should do it (he keeps a good record so if I do forget, or just can't recall at that moment, I'll check with him).

We travel a lot and if I didn't KNOW my login to my many accounts, I'd be lost. Like you, Lena, I've heard folks whining that they can't get into an account because... someone else has the login, or they just didn't bother to commit it to memory themselves.

@P.S.

I'm not sure that I find it hilarious, I do think it's sad though. And, you are right she didn't think it was funny at the time although now she looks back on it and chuckles at how naive she was.

And, I agree with you, there are ways to give people access without giving them "full control" access.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

I find that hilarious that someone was locked out of their Twitter account by someone who essential works for them. (Although I can appreciate that she probably didn't think it was that funny.) Not only should you always have your own logins, those logins should be secret from the people you're working with. Instead of giving them your login, you grant access to the your account through another program or adding a another login. For example, don't give others your WordPress login; Make them a user account you have control over. Don't give them your Twitter login; Give them access through a program like Hootsuite.
