the way to keep all credit cards and banks info

Guys, I have a technical question. I am sure most of you keep all your credit cards and banks info in some files (otherwise it wouldn't be possible to track everything). How do you keep it safe? I created a password-protected doc file and keep it on my work PC, but I am sure it's not the best way. I would like to keep it somewhere in the cloud so that I can access it from any place. But I am afraid it can be hacked. What do you do?

I have mine in excel but only on my desktop.

I have remote access to my desktop using teamviewer.

Google drive, 125GB for $1.99 but use Discover and it is free if no other charges on card every month.

Phone apps are good, I have used Keeper for a few years for mileage/point programs but haven't put banks on it yet. I think it would work well though.

forgot to mention, excel is password protected.

and they'd have have to hack my teamviewer account first and find the excel file.

Be careful with TeamViewer. I was a huge fan for years until I got hacked recently and walked in on someone buying $150 of Itunes cards on Ebay thanks to it.

I'm not sure what my long term solution will be, but for now, no remote desktop here.

I use a passworded Excel file that is in an encrypted container. Symantec Endpoint Encryption is a great tool. ^

To those who using password manager websites or apps, isn't this on hit list of hackers as it is very obvious the intended purpose. In one place, they can have all your passwords.

I use LastPass it keeps secure notes where you can save bank account info and you can also store all your credit card info. I pay the $12 per year for the premium service to have mobile app access.
