Lost your passwords?

How many passwords have you used or created from the first day you touches computer? I’m sure you have passwords to login to your PC, email account, server, modem, router, Wifi, bios and many more. Many of those computer devices have default user names and passwords install. Before you gain access you need to get through their passwords first. Did you ever encounter devices that you never used for many years and suddenly needed to access it due to some other installation that requires new setting? It’s understandable that you don’t remember the password and user name but still you have to figure out a way to access it. There are few ways that you can recover them. The most direct way is to call up the product company. You may also check the user manual that is if you still have it. Check online and see if the product has an official homepage that offers help.

I think for this reason, a site that listed out all the default usernames and passwords were created. Well, most of the default usernames and passwords. Most of the time you don’t need it but once you do, finding the user names and passwords might be a pain in the neck.

You'll see the problem when your firefox lost the password. For example your system crash and you could not recover any info. Sometimes accident do happened, it's best to be prepared.
