Chrome Browser: Disable Password Passphrase Autologin Seahorse

Today i got a call and was asked how to STOP Seahorse from asking with a Passphrase Popup after opening Chrome or Chromium Browser:

Seems that google implementated a new Tool for Security to Prevent Access to STORED Browser Passwords, BUT this won’t work on Desktops with USER AUTOLOGIN like Lightdm!

Howto:

  • open a Terminal an enter

ln -s /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop /home/username/Desktop/google-chrome.desktop

    • Now open the new Icon on the desktop with the mouse right click
    • Change Command Line for Chrome :

google-chrome-stable --password-store=basic %U

  • or for (chromium):
  • chrome browser disable password
  • Now open the Browser with the new Icon Link
  • On Ubuntu you can hold the Icon at the Taskbar after open the App with Store on the Taskbar
  • Changed only on  the User Desktop prevent you from Change the App by default for other Users!
  • Changed only on  the User Desktop prevent Chrome Updates from overwriting the new Command!
