    While I'm working on my sites I was just wondering...

    How do you guys keep track of all the social media/email/website accounts? (Mainly talking about passwords and other info. Not handling the accounts.)

    Is Excel the way to go or is there a handy tool for this?

    I've been using Excel, but it's a little pain in the ass, since I never worked with Excel before.

    I would love to hear you experience with this!

    For email, I just get them all added to one email and have folders for each. All domains are in cPanel. I don't use social medial that much, so just remember them, although there is software to manage them if you have thousands.

    Some people say LastPass is the best password manager, however I'm a little paranoic when it comes to password managers, I always think "What if it's just another free software developed by the government to easily steal passwords?". So I save my passwords in a text file.

    I'm terrible at remembering stuff! Haha!

    Me too! However I like to stay organised though. Just have a page from 1 website with the Wordpress admin, Email, social media accounts, basically keep track of the whole website management.

    I use LastPass to manage all my passwords. Put it this way, if you're paranoid about it, just look at how well LastPass dealt with the heartbleed bug.
    I use InfiniteWP to manage all my WordPress sites and I use Buffer and Hootsuite to manage all my social media (it gets crazy when you have dozens of social media accounts to manage).

    Another vote for Lastpass. It keeps me organized and is a great time saver.

    Excel is a great place to start, it forces you to create a standard way of organising all the information you need. When you get to the point of having hundreds (or thousands) of accounts you can literally import your Excel spreadsheet into a Database like MySQL.

    Basic spreadsheets on excel or online docs sites should be a good way to manage your records

    + 1 for RoboForm.

    You can also encrypt all your logins.

    Maybe encrypt it if you're worried about security.
