GPGServices: latest version 4.3.2 causing problems for me

Dear GPG Team: after I installed this version the app is now giving me a pop-up asking me for a password for my public key to decrypt my encrypted files. It never did this before and as I don’t have an access code I cannot access my files now! Wow.

Not happy. :-(

Do I have to uninstall and go back to previous version?

It should not have asked me for a password. I never set one when encrypting the file. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Hi John,

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

    the pinentry requests you are seeing could be happening due to the migration from MacGPG 2.0 to 2.2.

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