    Hi Ailant,

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

    The Pinentry dialog is asking for the password / passphrase you used when you created your OpenPGP key.

    This KB-article explains what to do if you forgot your password or lost access to your secret key.

    Let me know if that was helpful or if you need further assistance.
