Locking and unlocking

In libsecret you can unlock items directly, and the result is (with gnome-keyring daemon) that the enclosing collection will be unlocked.

It is no longer possible to pass a password to unlock keyrings. These are automatically prompted for.

Replacements for related libgnome-keyring functions and types are described below:

Table 8.
