I asked something similar, and had some suggestions on password software, but since I am already using MS word & MS excel, it would be a little tedious to start again entering all this stuff into something else, also a standalone app is a little expensive now, where as I already have MS office with word & excel, but I will by an app if it is alot better than what I am using now, I also would need the app to be cross platform. which would be better? so far I have been using Microsoft word .doc to store a list of all my passwords. I also have an excel file with passwords as well, can these be safely encrypted? or would a dedicated password management software be better? I ask about how secure encrypting a Microsoft word of excel document is, because I see numerous articles on how to decrypt them, & Microsoft has an article about decrypting as well as encrypting. Wouldn't someone or something just have to Google these articles to decrypt my passwords if in the unfortunate chance they got into the wrong hands? if I use specific password software, I would like to be able to use it on other computers besides my own, if I find I have to use a someone elses or public computer.
