[SOLVED] Uninstalled chromium but cann't get rid of the secrets

Hey,
I used chromium for a while but switched to firefox now.
I uninstalled chromium with

sudo pacman -Rsn chromium

So now chromium is removed BUT some days later I noticed that there are still the chromium secrets in my login keyring and I deleted them.

The problem is that this 3 secrets are recreated after every restart.

Any idea what causes this? Chromium is definitely uninstalled.

Are you using any electron applications (e.g. discord or so)/other browsers based on chromium/blink? I don't think it would be far fetched if these registered under the same name.

You may have left some privacy/security settings enabled before uninstalling.

"pacman -Rsn" should never leave files anywhere apart from what the package stores in the users' home directory.

Ah I forgot that Electron is Chromium based
