 How to Get rid of the login keyring password

When we configure our account for login automatically, wheen booting we will be asked for our password for unlock the login keyring. If nobody else use your computer, this is useless, but it's really easy to remove:

First of all, we have to search for Passwords and Encryption Keys. Also you can open it from terminal:


You have to go to Passwords Tab, and there you will se a folder: Passwords: login  

Right Click and then Change Password. Enter your old password, and leave blank the new password fields.

Now you can try rebooting, it shouldn't appear now!


Also, the login keyring ask for the password if you have changed your user password. Doing this can fix that, just in the new passsword fields enter your new password.

if making new users was REALLY simple then keyrings are useless...
(ie what groups they need, remove computer updates???, setting language for new users, use same windows setup as admin, which applets to have, not force 8 char in windowed add user, copy privacy settings in FF+chromium, let possibility to install from only specific parts of software Manager(thinking of wife and kids here),)

it's a real pain this thing, if I use chromium logged in with my google account the thing pops up all the time! Even cuts my wifi.
This should be changed!!!!

Renaming the folder /home/username/.local/share/keyrings to /home/username/.local/share/keyrings.old and a restart solved my problem.

This didn't solve my problem with the keyring question every time I login.

I was not able to enter the old password.

But I have solved it by moving the file .local/share/keyrings/login.keyring away, then creating a new keyring named "login" using seahorse and then replacing the new login.keyring by the old again.

Gnome keyring has never worked for me, not in Mint 13 and not in Mint 17. I've been asking how to make it work but never got an answer.

It never ask for a password with auto login enabled...

Tried your method and got this message.

Method "ChangeWithPrompt" with signature "o" on interface "org.gnome.keyring.InternalUnsupportedGuiltRiddenInterface"
doesn't exist

Any other ideas would be appreciated.
