Reset key ring Debian 8 Jessie, Debian Stretch 9.

Have you forgotten your "Keyring" passwords in Debian and want to reset your Key Ring, but keep old passwords, you must first backup the existing ones.

Reset key ring Debian 8 Jessie, Debian Stretch 9.

cd ~ /.local/share/keyrings/

Press Enter.

cp login.keyring login.keyring.backup

Press Enter.

Then delete the keyring file with the following command:

rm ~ /.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring

Press Enter.

Create a new keychain file and rename it for "login."

Then replace the file with your backup:

cd ~ /.local/share/keyrings/ mv login.keyring.backup login.keyring

Press Enter.

If you want to delete and create a new one, you can easily do that with the following command in the Terminal window:

rm ~ /.local/share/keyrings/login.keyring

Press Enter.

Or if you prefer file manager:

Open the home folder in the file manager and press CTRL + h to display hidden files and folders.

In .Gnome2 / keyrings, you delete login.keyring

If you are tired of having to enter your key password, you can choose not to set a password, but I do not recommend this because then all passwords will be saved in plain text.

If you want to use a GUI user interface, you can download and install seahorse.
