I've just started using GPG suite , when I started using it and creating my first key. I was not asked to create a pass phrase.
Could you please help?

    Hi Megline,

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

    Did you already have an existing key or was the key you genereated your first OpenPGP key?

    Could you open GPG Keychain and press the "+" icon to generate a new key. In the dialog that will then open, you should see a field asking for a password.

    Can you confirm that?

    For new users we recommend reading the Getting Started Tutorial.

    Don't hesitate to ask if anything is unclear or you have open questions after going through the KB article.

    All the best,
