Decrypting folder without asking for password

Good Morning

One factor caught my attention, when I encrypt an individual file when I click on decrypt it asks me for the chosen password, when I encrypt a folder and I click on decrypt it already does the process automatically without asking for the password, is this an error or is it normal? How can I configure the program so that the program asks me for a password every time I decrypt a folder?


The probable answer: When you enter the password it is cached - kept for 10 minutes (I think). So it does not ask again during that time.

Test it again.


yes, gpg-agent caches the passphrase for a secret key.
You can change the setting to disable caching.

The option is --default-cache-ttl you can also set if via Kleopatra (IIRC).
