I have the same problem. I have installed for the first time GPG Suite and I've never been asked to enter a secret phrase.

    Hi ilaurent,

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

    Have you already created a key? If so, please see the following information:

    the pinentry requests you are seeing are happening due to the migration from MacGPG 2.0.x to 2.2.0.

    Please visit the following KB-article and let me know if that brings you back to the expected state.


    Whenever you need assistance with GPG Suite, please create a new discussion. While it is common on other forums to join existing discussions with similar or identical problems, for the GPGTools support forum, this is not a good idea. Having many users in one discussion is likely to cause confusion, thus it's best to solve issues on a "per case" basis. That helps to keep the discussion straight forward and provide a fast solution to you and other users.

    I have thus split your comment into a separate discussion.
