Which passwords correspond to which accounts?

Being able to recall strong passwords is one thing. Being able to recall the correspondence between accounts and passwords is another.

When different sets of images are allocated to different accounts, those unique image matrices will be telling you which images you should pick up as your credential for this or that account.

When using hard-to-forget images of our episodic memories, Expanded Password System will free us from the burden of managing the relation between accounts and the corresponding passwords.

By the way, password managers would be helpful if used modestly not to create a single point of failure, although we cannot rely on them for unlocking our computers and phones offline.
