I have a strong password set up for the database, I always store any new login stuff in there, and I keep a copy of the database on my desktop, mobile phone, server and in the cloud so that even if one -- or even multiple -- devices were to break I'd still always have a copy somewhere. Also, the Android - app is handy on-the-go.

Yikes. I wouldn't want to store my passwords on my phone or laptop or any other computer I take with me even occasionally or on any USB thumb drive... but there's no way in hell you'd ever see me put all my password in a file up in the "cloud." Even if they were first encrypted in a database file. Just not gonna happen. I just don't have that kind of trust.
