It is very efficient to use the first method. However, it is before you forgot the password that you have to burn it by yourself. Whereas, like most users, you donâ€™t feel you need to trouble with, confident in the reliability of your memory. But when the day comes that supposedly familiar word slips your mind, you’re going to regret not making that preparation.
