Should I sync my keyrings to remote key servers?

Asked by quipquopro on 2021-01-30

In seahorse, it offers the option to do this, but it doesn't mention the risks involved. Where can I go to find out more about the pros and cons, so that I can make an informed decision? If I do decide to sync my keyrings, are they only protected by the strength of the master password? What else do I need to know?

No, The Keyring holds all of the keys, which is private information for you to keep safeguarded.
Only the individual key it's self an Open Public Key is pushed to the key server.
