Passwordsssss

Having so many passwords to remember is an pain!!! If you can no problems, no questions. Or if you happen to forget the password, how do you recover it? Seems Google and all online services provide password recovery services. They ask some 1 or more questions like, date of birth or school name, mother name and what give you back an new password. And few services give choices for password recovery questions.

Is it not stupid, login page doesn't have more than one option to authenticate but recovery can be done by some insane questions. Having access to Facebook/Orkut profile passwords can be recovered pretty much easily.

Should password recovery be more powerful than password itself!?
