    Hi Mick,

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

    Could you provide a bit more background about your request for support. When are you seeing those requests? Have you not been asked for your password previously? When you enter the password is it accepted or rejected?

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

    All the best and have a great weekend,
