Is it a bad idea to syncronize ~/.password-store and ~/.gnupg folders between multiple machines? I'm trying to figure out a good password management solution. If somebody were to get the contents of both folders would it somehow be easier to decrypt the stored passwords?

  • I put $password-store in a syncthing repo and keep separate gnupg directories on each machine. That works for me. – jasonwryan Mar 1 '17 at 6:45
  • any reason for separate gnupg directories? – jmply Mar 1 '17 at 8:15
  • I set them up before I started using syncthing. And it is convenient to have different settings for my home and work machines. – jasonwryan Mar 1 '17 at 8:16

I often sync this two directories between computer, softlink between harddisk. Keep it same contents. But never put them to web.

Anyone get this, he still needs to crack your private key password. You should believe GPG.
