Questions tagged [gnome-keyring]

GNOME Keyring is a daemon application designed to take care of the user's security credentials, such as user names and passwords. The sensitive data is encrypted and stored in a keyring file in the user's home folder. The default keyring uses the login password for encryption, so users don't need to remember yet another password. Do not confuse with GNOME Passwords and Keys, which has its own tag [seahorse]
