Stability of memory is a memory variable that determines how long a memory can last if undisturbed and if not retrieved. Stability determines the probability of forgetting in unit time (the higher the stability, the less the probability).

Stability (S) and Retrievability (R) are part of the Two component model of long-term memory.
