    I don't want to watch a videos, but back in the days of phone cards it was a concern that someone would watch you type in the code and then go onto use your phone card.

    Also my wife has no problem memorizing our two 16+ digit library numbers and her personal credit card numbers. I'm lucky if I can remember my work phone number...

    Remembering numbers comes easy to me as we'll, don't know why but I have all of my credit cards remembered (I do it when I get them). Even though I use Award Wallet I have most of my FF and Loyalty numbers memorized along with a bunch of my wife's. On the other side of that my math is good but not nearly as good as my memory.

    I used to have my MNBA Chicago Cubs card number memorized, because I had the same, and only credit card for 3-4 years. That was also before the requirement of the 3 digit code on the back for online purchases. I do have my AAdvantage number memorized now, but it's short. Most everything else, I need help with these days. Awardwallet has come in mighty handy in my mid-30's. :)

    I think a lot of people can memorize a few string of characters. No big deal! I do it by associating a 4 character string to some word I already know
