gpg keyvhain

Hi. I've been using the GPG key chain for pgp for a while now......Today I have noticed if I "decrypt file" but just click cancel after it just decrypts my file?

    Yes I've tried everything I can think of now. All variations I pressing cancel result in my file becoming open and accessible.

    Hi Damian,

    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.

    This sounds like your password my be stored in macOS keychain or in the cache. Please press the "Delete" button in System Preferences > GPG Suite Preferences and let me know if the behavior then persists.

    If the issue persists, please write down the exact steps you take when decrypting.

    Also in System Preferences > GPG Suite Preferences > About please check which version of GPG Suite you are running and let me know.
