I'm using Fedora 22 with the Gnome environment (but I have i3 window manager too) and I get a great surprise when I have found the existence of a tool called Gnome Keyring, formerly know as Seahorse.
I'm currently increasing my security using a password manager and two-factor authentication for everything, I also have disabled browser password managers and cleaned all my passwords from Chrome (Beta) and Firefox. My default browser is Chrome, but I don't use it anymore (just for Netflix and Hangouts), the browser I use today is Firefox.
I was really surprised when I discovered Gnome Keyring, a tool that I never heard about and that was saving all my passwords in PLAINTEXT without my consent.
- What is Gnome Keyring / Seahorse?
- Why it's storing passwords in plain text, allowing anyone to see passwords?
- How can I disable this from my computer? I never enabled that.
