Using GPG as a Last Pass Alternative

I use Last Pass on my laptop but have recently been thinking of moving away from it. There have been several reasons for this e.g.
  • Breaking accessibility in my browser
  • Lack of secure clients for some of my devices (Sailfish OS & Ubuntu Touch)
  • I wish they were open about their algorithms
but I don't want this to be an anti Last Pass article, for some people it works very well and it's certainly better than reusing the same password on different sites.

My solution is a simple one, since all of my devices have a command line with gpg installed just use gpg to encrypt my passwords. I can then sync this encrypted file between all of my devices. Below you can see how to do this, in case it's something your thinking of doing yourself:
