Chromium requires libgnome-keyring (optional) for being able to unlock its keyring. Otherwise it asks for a password on each first launch, for each new user session.
This task depends upon

Perhaps a better solution is to make chromium dependent of libgnome-keyring and not gnome-keyring, as this second package is already optionally dependent of the first one.

Chromium uses libsecret so libgnome-keyring is not needed. It sounds like you need to figure out why your keyring isn't unlocked on login.

The keyring unlocks automatically on login, but it seemed to fail from time to time. Nevertheless, for some reason, it isn't happening now.
