Tips

Your keyring password is most often identical to your login password, and will ususally be unlocked when you log on.

In other desktop enviroment, such as KDE, you will perhaps be told that your keyring is locked. In such cases, you might want to install GNOME Passwords and Keys to be better able to control your Keyring.

Trivia

Before GNOME Passwords and Keys (or Seahorse), GNOME used Gnome Keyring Manager.
