How do I get Nextcloud client to remember my password after a reboot?

I am using Nextcloud client to connect to two instances of Nextcloud. Each boot of my computer removes the password that should have been stored for each account. So instead of Nextcloud syncing, I now have to manually log into each instance and create a new app password and use that password in my Nextcloud client until I reboot my computer.

I feel like a package is missing that should be remembering this password but I don't know what. Thoughts?

I'm running the Cinnamon DE on Fedora 29.

You are missing a service to store and retrieve credentials, or it is not properly integrated in Gnome. There must be a way around gnome-keyring to make it work.

But I am using the flatpak version of the Nextcloud client from flathub here, and it works fine.

gnome-keyring is already installed. Not sure why it isn't being used in this instance.
