When you (with Nautilus or Nemo) access a resource that requires a passphrase you are presented with a dialogue that gives you the choices to

  • forget password immediately
  • remember password until you logout
  • remember forever

When you select "remember forever" the passphrase is stored in your login keyring, accessible with seahorse (also see How to make login keyring forget a password)

Now when I selected remember password until you logout I cannot find that entry in seahorse. Where is it stored?

Note: I am well aware of the possibility to simply logout/login but I still want to find the place where it is stored.

    It would make sense if it was just kept in RAM. – TheWanderer Mar 26 '16 at 17:41

    And this depends on the application. You phrase it in a general way, but these particular options are usually seen in Nautilus and Nemo (probably other file managers as well). – muru Mar 26 '16 at 17:43
