Remove “Unlock Keyring” Prompt

Whenever Ubuntu boots up, if you are not using a password for login, the user is prompted to unlock the Keyring. This can be annoying especially if you are running Ubuntu on a private computer, such as a laptop, where no one else will have access to it. The rest of this article will focus on showing you how to remove the Unlock Login Keyring prompt for many of the most recent releases of Ubuntu.

Make Keyring Accessible Without Password:

In order to remove the Unlock Login Keyring dialog set the password for the keyring to an empty password. This prevents being prompted for a password.

  1. Open Applications –> Accessories –>Password and Encryption Keys
  2. Right-click on the “login” keyring
  3. Select “Change Password”
  4. nter your old password and leave the new password blank
  5. Press ok, read the security warning, think about it and if you still want to get rid of the Unlock Login Keyring dialog, choose “use unsafe storage”

As the message states: This will expose all passwords saved in the keyring (e.g. email passwords) to anyone using your computer or having access to your files and is not recommended.

Ubuntu 11.04

You can use the search box to find Passwords and Encryption Keys by typing Password in the search box and pressing search.
