    Hey Sergio,

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

    Please see this KB-article on how to manage passwords for your keys.

    This sounds like your contact stored their password either in the macOS keychain or are using a long time to cache the password. Above KB article has the details.

    Let me know if this was helpful.

    All the best,
