Forgot your password?

Journal Journal: How do you properly manage your various passwords? 1

I've been scratching the ol' noodle lately on a good way to securely store my massive list of website/email/banking/etc usernames and passwords.

I'm often faced with the problem of trying to pay my phone bill, but I forgot the URL of the website and can't remember my username, password, or both. I then have to take the time to either retrieve the password or call customer service.

I could simply store this in a text file and pray that nobody ever gets a hold of the list, but that's probably not the most viable option.

Anyone have any experience with this? Security is my main concern here.
