I want to store my keys in a secure encrypted location. I read a previous article suggesting moving the keys to a secure location and then create an alias in ~/ to the new location however it doesn't seem to work for me. Can you please provide instructions? Much appreciated. I am sure there are many people with similar requirements, why not allow people to customise the path in the app, or better still provide secure encrypted storage for the keys.

    Hi Peter,

    could you please describe what you've tried so far, so we can find out what step didn't work?

    As per your suggestion of allowing to customize the path in the app, that's something we've started working on already, but will still take a little time.
    The secret keys itself are encrypted and you can only use them if you know the passphrase, but it makes sense to not always have them on your internal hard disk.

    Following is the link to the ticket you might watch:
