Trying to decrypt something. It is asking me for a paraphrase I created. I don't recall making one. What do I do or where can I find it???

    Hi TG,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Have you created your own sec/pub key? If yes, the password you are being asked for is likely the password you used during key creation.

    If you open GPG Keychain and tick the bottom right option, to only show secret keys, how many keys do you then see?

    This KB-article explains what to do if you forgot your password or lost access to your secret key.

    All the best,
