- How to disable GNOME keyring? 2 answers
I just downloaded Ubuntu 13.04 earlier and was trying it out. At least I know you can surf all installed applications with the dash home if you click the icons at the bottom, you're not forced to memorize all the names of everything.
I'm used to Windows, where programs have their own ways of storing passwords--and they do, and I've never had a hard time. It makes me comfortable. I'm very *un*comfortable with the idea of something storing pretty much ALL my passwords, I prefer them to be separate entities.
Is a keyring really necessary for programs like Chrome and Firefox? Can I just disable the keyring altogether and still have Chrome remember my passwords, or when I use Ubuntu, will I forever have to type a password for it to automatically type a password? To me, typing a password so I don't have to type a password just doesn't make any sense.
I'm confused. I never remember having to do this when I installed Linux before.
And yes, I have the login password the same as the keyring password but I still have to log into both each time.
