On a different note, I used to store login in the filename as
`<website>/<login>.gpg`, and I forked passmenu to type <login> and
copy the password (first line of the content). It was quite good but a
bit impractical to deal with many folders honestly.

Later, I decided that having the login in the filename is some form of
vulnerability (though it's probably not actually secret info, and
having the same easily known content verbatim in many files encrypted
with the same key probably allows cracking them more easily).
I therefore followed the usual path and now the login is in the second
line. I still keep a forked passmenu to type that login while copying
the password. (Apparently this is not something people would want from

Good luck figuring out what works for you.
