    This BookFactory Password Journal Will Be The Answer To Your Log-In Prayers

    Because your new password must be 2,764 characters long, have 12 symbols, and can't be similar to any word you've ever uttered in your entire life.

    "What email address did I use?" "Ugh, I JUST changed the password!" "What do you mean I'm locked out?" We've all played this game before, where we try to log-in to one of the many sites we frequent but can't seem to remember any of the information needed to get in. Yes, yes, it's for our protection but it's also really freakin' annoying, to say the least.

    Well folks, annoyance solved! Because BookFactory has a super durable password journal with enough spaces to record which websites used what email, username, and password! It even has spaces for short notes you might want to remember about the site — like the answer to your security questions.

    It comes with a translucent cover that protects it from moisture, its spiral bounding makes it lay flat (for easy writing), and depending on your needs it comes in three sizes...but more on that in a bit.

    "This was exactly what I wanted. The book has a heavy plastic cover and heavy-duty wire binding. The paper is of good quality, although my favorite gel pens did have some bleed-through. I'd recommend a ballpoint or pencil. The entries have wide spaces, with room for website, email, username, password, and notes which is perfect for noting the answers to those security questions. (What's your favorite ice cream flavor? I don't remember what I answered a year ago!). The password section has a good number of extra lines, for those sites that make you change your password with annoying frequency. If you are considering this password book (which I'm guessing you are), please note that the official product photos show only the smallest book size, with just one website per page. I ordered the large 8.5-x-11 size. It has four websites per page." —Amazon Customer

    And the best part is, it makes updating your password a little easier. Reviewers have praised this spiraled lifesaver with over 500 5-star reviews for making it that much simpler to frequently change their passwords and for giving them the peace of mind that they're staying safe out on those online streets.

    "This is a great little book to have! Lots of room on the page if you keep changing your password, which I do. I would recommend buying one." —judy m merrill

    "Love this! Use it all the time for every little thing! Such peace of mind being able to write down those reminders and keep them easily concealed. Enough room to add extra notes all over! I prefer a hard copy to store my information in, instead of using an app." —A. Hughes

    "I like this little book to organize my passwords, which I had kept in a number of places and never knew which one was where. Having all the user names, passwords, and website names all in one place is handy. There are even a few lines for extra information like phone numbers and security question answers. Everything is alphabetized by the website. It couldn’t be easier to stay on top of things!" —Denise A Parker

    Now for those of you shouting, "well what happens if someone gets their hands on this book?" I hear you, and I had the same thoughts. But reviewers have been very clear about keeping their password journal in safe and secure areas in their homes. Its inconspicuous design doesn't call any attention to itself and could easily and safely live on a bookshelf without anyone ever knowing it was there.

    "It is what it is, a password book that has worked out perfectly for myself and the friend I bought a second one for. I just thought may as well so I can keep track of this stuff NON-digitally, and you know what? This has surprised me by HOW much I've actually used it! ALL the time. A website I haven't logged into for a while? Well, I could reset the password, or just check the book and the book HAS it, no need to think of a new password if I've forgotten, AND I've now even gotten into the habit of using even more complicated passwords because of how good this is! Remember to always use safe password practices; 'password' is not a proper password and ALWAYS hide your book, inside a safe preferably! I mean, if you have a TON of stuff you need passwords for maybe get a bigger one, but really this is just a good and quite cheap investment. 5/5 WILL buy again." —C. Staghelm

    It's available in three sizes, with the bigger sizes offering you more space for updated passwords.

    There is a 3.5-x-5.25 inch ($7.99), 5-x-7 inch ($9.99), and 8.5-x-11 inch ($14.99) option to choose from.

    "I got the 5 x 7, Sharpie for scale. Everything that you would need for an individual or a family with moderate internet usage. Easy to use. Clean design and layout. I got this because I wanted to revamp my passwords from eight digits on all my accounts to 18-digit pass codes, it works wonderfully for that purpose. I would recommend writing with a pencil (probably a good idea)." —Tammy

    "This little book has room for 116 websites in ABC order, plus four more pages for extras. It also has lines for at least six changes in passwords for each site. It is very important to be able to change passwords and keep up with them. I don't think it can be beaten for the price. I ordered extras for gifts." —Sherry

    Honestly, if you're in need of a way to keep track of your passwords and log-in deets this might really be the little miracle you've been waiting for. Check it out on Amazon starting at $7.99.

    "Lifesaver for us older folks that suffer from CRS. I got the medium-sized book and it has enough pages under the letters (A, B, C, etc) that it suits my needs. Yes, there's more than enough room to store data. I have gone to this wonderful booklet more than I can say. Every once in a while my computer does clean up and I'm no longer automatically logged in...WTH? What login did I use for this site??? What was the password I used??? Now I just reach for this book and I'm in. Love it." —NeedaCorona

    "I love this little notebook. It’s small, but not so small that you have to write in a miniature font. It also leaves several lines where the password entry is so that you have room to update information if you change a password. I think that’s pretty cool because I like to update my passwords ever four to six months and that way I don’t have to create a new entry or buy a new password book altogether. It was shipped with protective wrap in a box, and it was in perfect condition and on time, I am very satisfied with my purchase!" —Sammie
