|KWalletManager manages some of your passwords in an encrypted file - but Kgpg does not use Kwallet, neither does firefox.|
KWalletManager is an optional tool which can greatly assist your work-flow while maintaining security.
A right-click, context menu on the wallet in kwalletmanager offers maintenance options:
Clicking (or in some versions, double-clicking) on a wallet allows you to examine the contents of a wallet. From here you can remove any entries that you do not wish to be further controlled by the wallet. A further advantage is that it is possible to examine the passwords for individual entries - particularly useful if you have mis-typed a password and stored it. These activities remain secure, since they are only available after you have given the passphrase.
|For greater security configure KWalletManager to use one wallet for local passwords and a separate one for network passwords and form data.
Some apps, e.g. octopi, offer multiple options for password entry, e.g. gksu besides kdesu. gksu then offers to store a password, say the root password, in the gnome-keyring to save you the bother of repeated entering of the password in short intervals of time. That gnome keyring is a "wallet" separate from the KDE-wallet. Another separate "wallet" is the file /etc/passwd for login passwords into Gnu/Linux.
Open KDE Wallet Manager, and go to, and there adjust application settings. Useful if you mistakenly told an application not to use KDE Wallet Manager.
Use KDE-wallet with Python in a CLI: CLI.
