I would like to know if there is a way that you can find out what websites that you have joined or gone to? I have joined a lot of forums over the years but so far I have lost track of where they are. I would like to know what is a easy way to see where you have been?

Open your web browser, hit Ctrl and H, this will bring up your history (it does not go back years however). There is no history of sites you've joined.

I'd go through your emails and search for registration or confirmation emails. You can also google your username, sometimes it'll come up on forums under the userlist or a post you made.

I must be paranoid. I have history set for 0 days. Only what I visited today will be listed. And I clean out temp files at least once a week. It's scary to see the sites that have cookies that you never visited on browsing history settings- website data settings- view files

I use Ccleaner just about every day to keep things cleaned out. I'm a bit paranoid as well.

OP, in the future every time you join a forum or find an interesting site, bookmark it. That's how I keep track. I have a lot of bookmarks, but I keep them well organized so they're easy to find. I also review them about once a month and prune the list of sites I find I no longer visit.

I have the same trouble. That's why I created a document and wrote down what forum I registered plus quick link to my profile. The only problem is that I may forget my document someday.

Roboform. Won't help you go backwards in time, but it will solve the problem going forward, and is much easier than trying to maintain a text file or spreadsheet or something.

There are many solutions out there claiming that you only need one password and it will remember all others for you. I still trust my own text file better.
