GPG Keychain: passphrase
i’m trying to encrypt an address and have happily done this before by selecting the address, then services, encrypt selection. I chose the recipient and my key and press encrypt.
The encrypted address would then be shown in text editor and allow me to send on.
After selecting encrypt I now and asked to enter a passphrase to unlock the open pop secret key but have never been asked this before I don’t believe I have ever set one up.

welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.
How many sec/pub keys do you see listed after following these steps?
From what you describe it sounds as if you are also signing the message. Signing will require access to your secret key which is protected with the passphrase / password you setup during key creation.
All the best,
