    It is Ubuntu which stores the passwords used by your browser (for example to log in to your Google account if you do opt to use the Chrome/Chromium password storage) in a keyring. So if you have a Google account and store your bookmarks on the cloud, Chromium tries to log in to your Google account when it starts and tries to load your account and password from the Ubuntu keyring.

    Ubuntu is asking for the keyring password. You can make this stop by opening seahorse and changing the Chromium keyring password to blank.

    sort of. your saved passwords (if you checked for example save my password in browser) are encrypted and stored in this keyring. so if someone breaks into the browser they still need to break into keyring to get to the saved passwords. that's how i understand it. on th eother hand knwoing the keyring password will unlock all passwords. you will only need to type it once to unlock all saved passwords.

    and as mentioned you can disable the feature.

    How to disable it?
    I just checked "Encrypt your password with your google credentials"
    didn't find any keyring options or where to store passwords

    Open the terminal and type seahorse. The "Passwords and Keys" window will open. Unlock the "default" under passwords, right click on default, and then choose change password. When you change the password, leave the new password blank
