Myself, use apg or wapg depending on what OS I'm on at the moment. wapg
is a windows version of apg that'll run from a ubs drive, also run
portable version of gpg from same usb drive, then just encrypt info to
myself about password, url, username, etc. Down side, the secring.gpg
ring stored on it as well. Will have invistigate making a secring only
for decrypting, (sub keys) with the primary sec key stored else where.
And Rockbox.org if your mp3 player supports it's replacement firmware
has a 'keybox' to store usernames;passwords.
