This week, I created a free printable password keeper that will help you organize your online accounts and declutter your digital life. If you prefer to keep a digital copy, here is an editable version of this password keeper where you can type, save, and print if you’d like.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared how to declutter our phones and even how to declutter our brains with a brain dump. Most of the clutter we have in our lives exists because of a disorganized mind, and the more cluttered our physical spaces are, the more disorganized our mind becomes.
This printable password tracker will help you become more efficient in many aspects of your life. Not only will you free up your memory, but you can take this opportunity to unsubscribe and cancel accounts from websites that you may find irrelevant today.

Do you Need a Printable Password Tracker?
A password tracker might seem picky, but each day passes there are more online tools, social media platforms, apps, and whatnot, that require us to create an account.
I don’t know about you, but I can no longer rely on my memory. Nor do I want to rely only on my Mac’s password vault. Technology can fail anytime, so I am old school, and I also keep a printed list of all my accounts and passwords.
For blogging alone, I have over 40 online accounts, and counting! To that, add social media accounts, shopping sites, and banking. So, it was time to create a printable and free password keeper.
We spend a significant amount of time on our computers, smartphones, and tablets. It only makes sense that we have a dedicated and specific place to record all the login information for each online account we create. This free printable password keeper might solve the problem if you are in the same position.
As an added bonus, taking the time to organize your accounts on a password log template will help you declutter your digital life by removing apps and accounts that no longer serve you.
How To Get Digitally Organized
Browsing the internet is a double-edged sword. On one side, you have this fantastic and unmatched tool that can help you perform thousands of tasks and activities without commuting or leaving your home.
On the other side, you have a gazillion of distractions that can send you down the rabbit hole in a matter of minutes. If you are reading this blog and like to browse and browse and keep browsing, I don’t have to tell you how the internet can suck the life out of you.
Printing this password keeper will force you to do a special exercise: declutter your digital life! But here’s what you should do before you download and print our free password tracker.
- Make a list of websites.
- Categorize the websites
- Cancel accounts and subscriptions to websites
- Download and print your password keeper
So first, let’s break some internet browsing habits starting by organizing our online accounts and ditching all those websites and accounts that are irrelevant. After you have sifted through all the websites, you can start organizing all the login information in your password tracker.
1. Make a List of Websites
Download my free printable brain dump sheet if you’d like and do just that: dump your brain and write down the names of all the websites you continuously visit.
You don’t have to write them in any particular order. The first ten websites might come to your mind quickly, and then you will feel like you don’t have anything else to put down. Wait and see. As the days go by, you will need -or want- to access some websites you might have missed.
Optional: write down the credentials used to login to each website. Later on, you can log them on the password organizer.
2. Categorize The Websites
Once your list is complete, it is time to categorize the websites. Print several pages of the password keeper, preferably one for each one of the following categories:
- Online shopping → could be broken up into subcategories such as food, clothing, miscellaneous, gifts, etc.
- Banking & Credit Cards
- Social Media
- Digital Storage → such as Google Drive or Dropbox
- Picture Management
- School & Education
3. Cancel Accounts and Subscriptions
It’s time to take a look at your digital life and declutter session! Rid your phone and computer of all those apps and accounts you created one day and have only used once!
By having a categorized list, you can quickly figure out which websites you love and want to keep visiting and which websites (and online accounts) you can live without.
Sometimes we sign up to a website to enter a contest or take advantage of an offer or a coupon, but we never revisit it. An excellent way to exercise this is by checking your inbox (and junk folder) and scanning through your emails.
- Unsubscribe from a website’s newsletter by scrolling down to the bottom of their email. By law, there should be an ‘unsubscribe’ link. If there is not an unsubscribe link or button, you can mark it as spam.
- If you have a Gmail account, Google makes it easy to unsubscribe. Click unsubscribe on the
linkat the top of each email that Google recognizes as incoming from a mailing list.
Keep in mind that unsubscribing from a website does not delete any account you might have created. To remove the account, you must sign in and go to your account settings for each site.
4. Download and Print Your Password Keeper
Once you have your list of websites categorized, download the password keeper and print 1 to 2 pages per category. Each page has room for ten accounts! Use this password tracker to organize your entire digital life.
This password keeper is a free download, and you can print it as many times as you wish, but please abide by my TOU. Sign up using the form below, and we will email you the password keeper.
New Version: Editable Password Keeper
If you prefer typing your login info into this sheet, I have created an editable password keeper. It is basically the same file but with editable fields. All you need to do is open the file with Adobe Reader, type in the information, save (make sure you name it differently each time!), and print if you wish. You can repeat this process as many times as needed!
Purchase below, with one click.
Hoping this is a productive day for you,
