    Not in this box
    - I also regularly forget passwords. But I Always send a email to myself with the (new) password in it. And I Always file those emails in the (email) folder with a boring name. (like "Aunt xxxxx").

    I have one password for KeePass file and second for my phone. Apart from that I need to remember PIN to my banking application and sim card. I will probably need to learn second PIN for Bitwarden on my phone.
