19% still save their password on a piece of paper

Passwords: You know you need them. You love them because they keep your data and internet-self secure. You hate them because you have to come up with good ones in order to do so and because if they are finally really good, you most likely will forget them at one point.

But where do people normally keep their passwords? Shockingly 19% write them down on a piece of paper and 5% user a document on their computer. And what about the 53% who remember it? Considering how many online services there are that want you to create an account it’s highly likely that there is at least some password-reuse involved.
