    Of course. If you want, you can use multi-factor authentication to control that one account.

    It's a trade-off. What's worse
    A) Trying to remember 60 different passwords and inevitably reusing the same password on a lot of those systems, whereby if one is compromised, a number of them are compromised (high probability this will happen) or
    B) Putting all your eggs in one basket and guarding it like hell

    My late FIL used a password manager. Unfortunately, he did not write it down anywhere or tell his wife, so all his accounts were locked and inaccessible after his coma...... it created a huge hassle....

    I go old school. I have a piece of paper tucked away somewhere with passwords, and all the sites using coded names so that others probably can't read it.

    Exactly. A multifactorial authentication system is going to be much less penetrable than the notepad file on your desktop.

    And, if you're squeemy about using an online system, use KeePass - it's free, installed locally and you can set it to multi-factor authenticate as well.

    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    You mean hand written or that you type it in and store it on a computer somewhere?
