Is there any way to auto-unlock the default keyring that pops-up on every start of Chrome, that works on even non-Ubuntu distros? I am using a Debian-based distro. Is there any solution which is popular and universal throughout debian-based distros.

I have seen a solution to this on AskUbuntu StackExchange community, but it works through Ubuntu's own Unity style settings. Another solution here suggests to use blank password instead for the keyring but I would like to avoid that.

  • It's Deepin. Comes with its own environment. Not that common. But its based off Debian. – brijs Jan 30 '17 at 18:54
  • Someone suggest to start chrome with the command line google-chrome --password-store=basic so that it won't ask use the gnome keyring. Anyway I've noticed that the keyring password request only happens with the direct (auto) user login at boot. Every time I log in manually to an account this issue doesn't happens. – Symb932 Jun 20 '17 at 15:16
