Password fatigue is the phenomenon of feeling overwhelmed by the need to remember all of them. To combat this, many users have found coping strategies.

Members were asked to rate their favorites on tools. The Code Project staff then compiled the highest rated listings, awarding the highest ranked in each product category.

Dec 2009 press-release

If ignoring it is impossible then we often implement a custom solution with user lists and passwords, or we simply expect the user control provided by the operating system to do the job [...] Visual Guard for .NET puts an end to this shoddy approach to security by making it trivial to implement and by providing good administration tools, and it works for both desktop applications and ASP.NET websites.
