 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:

seahorse

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.

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.
