Hi Scott-

I am looking for a software that is sort of a one stop place where you can manage your passwords.

I have FTP passwords to my website as well as a cloudflare security password. Passwords to commercial sites like my bank, Amazon, and eBay. I also have passwords to forums, library accounts, email and other things.

I wonder does has anyone come up with some way to streamline the process and do it from one software reasonably securely?

Excel spreadsheet. Name it something dumb and put it in an obscure location on your hard drive :)

If you don't have Excel you can use LibreOffice Calc for free and password protect the spreadsheet: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question ... readsheet/

Unfortunately the password protection on those types of files is a joke. That's why I name the file something obscure and hide it in a directory that has a lot of files. You can also change the extension of the file and rename it when you want to open it.

Just as with a bicycle lock, the password protection on Excel or Calc files can be defeated but it is an extra safeguard. I do agree that using obscure file and folder names helps as well. Scott.
