Keyring Is Locked Out

Hello,
I am currently using Fedora 40 with the XFCE desktop. Since about maybe last month I have not been able to access the Keyring because the password changed without my knowledge. I used the same password for my system and Keyring. I did not change the password at all and I am still able to login to my system and run sudo commands in my terminal. Is there any way to gain access back to my Keyring? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Have you tried the old password?

If you do not know any password that works I assume that you have lost the data and need to create a new keyrign. Without a valid password you expect that the keyring cannot be hacked right?
