Building a shared password manager on Google Sheets

Password managers have become an inevitable part of our online lives. The only way not to reuse a password is to use a password manager. Sharing over LastPass needs the user to know the other person’s email address and the receiving person need to have a LastPass account and have it installed. While I am a strong advocate of using password managers, I understand that everyone in a team might not be comfortable in doing so.

If we can use a shared secret to encrypt the password and save the encrypted text in the sheet, anyone who is looking for that password can just decrypt it using the shared secret. But everyone need to have the encrypt-decrypt tools installed. This takes us back to the original problem – everyone need to have the password manager installed. What if we could do this in Google Sheets itself?
