There are two common scenarios where you will be prompted for your keyring password:

1. You are set to auto-login
2. Your keyring password is different than your login password

For #1, if you want to remove the keyring password prompt, it is recommended you setup a login for Ubuntu and set the keyring password to be the same as your Ubuntu login password.

For #2 you can change the keyring password to be the same as your login password by:

1) Open Applications->Accessories->Passwords And Encryption Keys
2) Right-click on the "Passwords" folder and select "Change Password"
3) Set the new keyring password to be the same as your login password
