Clearing or Resetting the Gnome-Keyring

A few weeks ago, I needed to change the password for the Gnome-Keyring, as I wanted to lend my computer to a friend. This can be done using either the command line or through the GUI, the latter being the one I prefer for its simplicity. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to Places > Home
  2. Press ctrl-h to viewhidden files
  3. Navigate to .gnome2 > keyrings
  4. Delete the default.keyring file

That should do the trick
