I am on Linux Mint 17.3 and have on the station auto-login enabled. I have an SSH key in gnome-keyring.


I would like the SSH keyring not to ask me for password. I am aware it might pose a security risk, but this question is not about that.



  1. disable auto-login, I thought of this anyway
  2. logout and login again
  3. the next time I tried to connect to SSH there was a checkbox to automatically unlock this key, which I ckecked and proceeded with login
  4. voila!, after reboot I have increased security by disabling the auto-login and it does not ask me for password on SSH keyring
