    Hi Anthony,

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

    Can you share which version of GPG Suite you had installed before updating?

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

    Can you follow the steps to check if your password is stored in macOS keychain?

    I’m not sure what the previous version was but I keep pretty update so I wasn’t more than 1 or 2 versions behind. I’ve also tried updating to the version you have in beta, same results
