#703 new

Pinentry should ask the user explicitly if they want to store passphrases in keychain or not at first use

Reported by Support | December 10th, 2017 @ 12:04 PM

Assigned to Feedback #4945. At the moment we set the default for "Store in Keychain" for all keys in GPG Suite Preferences.
The default is to story the passphrase in Keychain, so some users are surprised when they are only asked for their passphrase once.

In order to accommodate the needs of more users that rather enter their passphrase every time, pinentry should give the user an active choice at first use, and present a dialog which allows to set the preference for this setting together with an explanation of what the possible advantages and disadvantages are.
