    You can, but then if someone gets the password they can get to both the accounts. The best idea is to use a different password for everything - an account here, an account on another forum, a different one for each email account, etc. Then if someone gets your password, they only get into one account.

    There are password programs that will keep them all for you safely. I use KeePass on my laptop and KeePass for Android on my phones, all using the same file on a cloud storage account.
