Is there a way to remember password in the keychain indefinitely?
I’m not interested in asking for my password every x seconds. I’ve already it set it to 99999 seconds.

To actually remember the password in the keychain. Not to expire.

    Hi Andrei,

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

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

    So in your case you would want to enable the option to store the password in macOS keychain.

    Let me know if this did the trick.
