Not everybody is fluent in tech or comfortable with fancy new programs, but passwords have been kept on paper for centuries and it's actually ok if you can keep them safe.  Here are some thoughts on how:

- don't leave passwords on stickies by your keyboard; your desk probably already has a locking drawer, so use it!
