The key password doesn’t seem to be stored in the Keychain.

Also sometimes I have to enter the password multiple times for it to be accepted.

Key password stored and retrieved from Keychain.

Enter password only once when asked.

    Hi Richard,

    we are very sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with the latest version of GPG Suite.
    We believe this problem is triggered if a user has a custom GnuPG version installed along side of our MacGPG. From the debug log I can tell that that is the case for you.

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if it solves your problem. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.

    Hi Luke,

    I installed the nightly build: GPG_Suite-2067n.dmg. It looks like this version resolves the issue. If it reappears with more use I will let you know.

    Thank you for the quick response and help.
