Password management - Security & Cryptography

I've gone through several approaches to my passwords. From super portable but dumb as shit, to very secure but not very portable.

Initially when I was like 9 or whatever I had a text file in my USB. Not encrypted or anything, I just put my usernames and passwords there.

Then I moved on to using LastPass[1]. An approach I had for like 3 years and it worked great, not once was my account hacked.

Then I moved on to using `pass`[1]. Which was great but a bit tedious. That was until I figured out I could use dmenu+pass, and then I had quick and easy secure access to my passwords. Though not portable because GPG. Then I thought of using z3bra's `pass` but it got tedious to import all the passwords and stuff.

Now I'm back to some sort of hybrid. I use GPG to encrypt my file with all my passwords, and use LastPass to login quickly to my most common websites.

I'm considering trying out getvault[3] seriously. It's as portable as it gets, pretty damn secure, and as long as you've a unique passphrase and pattern for service names, it's pretty unhackable.

@ThePlantMan that's a nice method. Though now that you've shared it with us we could figure it out. ;)

P.S.: Writing as if this was a text email cause I'm too lazy to bbcode.
