Due to my nature of work, I prefer separate email accounts for different purposes. I always prefer Gmail email addresses and currently have 3-4 email accounts which are frequently used. All the work, sign-ups at different websites and the associated data is classified based on their purposes. Hence, each email address has been used for the appropriate purpose. This does not only help me deal with the inbox clutter (Khichdi) but also saves me from finding a blog related email between tens of personal emails, or an important code related email in between tens of different emails. Everything is damn organised.
And then, I have a parent email account which I never ever forget. I have associated my phone number and this email with all other email accounts as well. I never use any lockers or password managers and carefreely use passwords and forget them. Even if I forget any password, be it of NetFlix or ISC or any other place, I stay clear that I will get it back anyway.
For many websites which ask us to have an account before using them, I do the same. Resetting passwords has become my default way of logging into many places. It also enables an additional layer of security to my profiles on these sites because my passwords keep changing from time to time.
This is my question for the follow-up answers to your post:
I am 99.99 percent sure of never losing my accounts. And you? :)
