In chromium, in function os_crypt::SelectBackend()¹, when GNOME is
detected, the backend is SelectedLinuxBackend::GNOME_ANY, which is
documented as "GNOME_KEYRING or GNOME_LIBSECRET, whichever is
available". This piece of code doesn't seem to automatically fall back
to the basic (unencrypted) password store, like the regular
login/password storage functionality does.

This can be overridden on the command line though, with "--password-
store=basic" (and thus doesn't require the connection of the password-
manager-service interface).
