Chrome login keyring

Recently I upgraded one of my computers to Slackware64 -current and installed Chrome 83.0.4103.106 (Official Build) using the SlackBuild in /extra. I am not signed in with my Google account in this browser and every time I start it I am presented with a message about authentication, which is annoying.

The message reads:

I do not store any passwords in this browser, do not want to sign in and do not want to be bothered by the pop-up. I searched a bit and found the solution in the Ubuntu forums.

If you pass the --password-store=basic option to Google Chrome, this notification will no longer appear. So, I made a local copy of its desktop file:

cp /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop ~/.local/share/applications

Opened it and modified the Exec line:

Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --password-store=basic

That’s it.
