Why not use a service like LastPass? Everything is encrypted/decrypted
client-side using your own, strong master password. This makes it
ridiculously easy to have strong, 18 character, Alpha-numeric + symbols
passwords unique to each service and site.
We use LastPass enterprise and the secure notes feature to easily, and
securely share credentials.
I'm fairly sure we pay less than $30/yr or something as well.
**Before anyone replies to this with the inevitable, "why would you give
all your passwords to one company" response, please alleviate yourself
of ignorance and learn how LastPass actually works, and if you're not
too familiar with software and/or cryptography, please don't hate on
LastPass with some tinfoil hat theory.
