Storing AWS passwords secretly on mac

If you are managing large number of the AWS Accounts in your organisation than its better to use some federated solution.

However if you are using passwords only than you can use the KeepPassXC

To securely store all your passwords in the keepassxc.

It maintains its own database and you can take the backup of the database to keep your password safe. It does not sync them externally thus lowering the threat of compromise.

In case your laptop corrupts you can import the database which was created earlier and you would be able to see the credentials.

Everytime you open your database you will have to unlock it initially before gaining access to the secrets.

Its much of the use is similar to the Hashicorp vault just the difference is instead of application making the request you keep your password in the keepassXC.
