Password Log Printables

Y'all. This free printable password log was created with my dear, darling husband in mind. He's been carrying around a crumpled, old piece of yellow legal pad paper with all of our household passwords for well over ten years. Ten years, y'all. That thing has so many scratch offs and cross outs and rewrites...I just can't even wrap my brain about how scary it is to interpret it all at this point. After going through my mom's estate after her unexpected passing, we've realized how extremely important it is to have good systems in place for these kinds of things. Download your favorite free printable password log design below.

As I mentioned, this password log printable is available in three colorful designs: polka dots, triangles, and the ever-popular diagonal stripes (it's the big reader favorite around here!). This post has been completely updated, but it was originally designed as a part of an entire series of home organizational printables. This Free Password Log was designed to coordinate with all of the printables from the series. It works well in a home binder system, too. I have loads of Home Binder System printables here (many of which have these same three colorful designs). 


How to Use a Password Log


Using this Password Log


This free printable password log is perfect for all of your website and online account passwords. This is something that definitely needs to be kept in a super safe and secure place.

  • Start by downloading your favorite printable password log design here or through the direct links below.
  • Print onto regular paper.
  • Fill in your account information (as pictured above).
  • Store in your Home Binder System (if you're into that sort of thing). And if you're not, be sure to keep this baby in a ridiculously secure spot.
  • Remember to update your passwords when you have to reset them.

Best Password Practices

After doing a lot of research regarding the best way to use passwords (I've helped my dad with this regarding my late mother's estate), the following are some of the best practices to put into place regarding your passwords for different websites and accounts.
  • Be sure to use different passwords (and even usernames) on different websites and accounts. It's not a great idea to use your same tried and true password on every single account. It's actually a nightmare if you were to get hacked. 
  • Try to implement multi-factor authentication wherever it's available. I have several websites/programs I am a part of that give me a discount just for utilizing this extra step of security.
  • Don't use passwords based on any of your personal identification that can be easily guessed. This includes important dates, surnames, etc. The weirder the password, the better.
  • Know your kids' passwords, as well. Be sure to keep them safe for them and talk to them about the good password practices as they begin to enter the media world. 
  • Would love to know any other tips you have in the comments for Best Password Practices.

More Fun, Free Printable Password Log Designs:

After this free printable password log initially went over so well when it was first published in 2015, I have since created another password log design, too. You can see it below and go download it, too, if you like.

The above is my latest printable password log design. It's a bit simpler in that it only has three blanks for you to fill in per account (website, username, and password). It's a freebie, too. Check it out here. And my friend, Kim, from Today's Creative Life has another great printable password log here
