How to automatically unlock gnome keyring on login when using Automatic login?

I find entering password to unlock keyring (which is the same exact password as the user password) sort of makes no point in using Automatic Login feature. I simply have to enter my password in a different field every time I log in.

Since I'm using LVM+LUKS setup, I figured entering the key to unlock LUKS every time i boot my PC is secure enough for me since I'm the only user on this PC. Or do i miss the point here?

This is really not a smart thing to do.

Malicious software can probably find a way to access the file then all your passwords would be read as plain text.

Anyway, this source, says ,

Automatic login

If you are using automatic login, then you can disable the keyring manager by setting a blankpassword on the login keyring.
