GPG Suite Preferences: Don't default to save to keychain or give a config option in GPG Keychain

Anytime I put in the password for a private key, in the dialog, the option to save to my Mac OS keychain is automatically ticked. If you can have an option to not automatically prompt, that would be great. Every once and a while, I forget to uncheck it and have to go into my Keychain Access and kill the password saved there.

I know this is convenience for some, but I use a password manager that locks for my private keys' passwords, so I like to invoke that, rather than someone having saved access to all my private keys.

    Hi, can you check if you have ticked the "Store in macOS Keychain" checkbox in the GPG suite settings?
