Bashrc not asking for passphrase anymore.

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Set up SSH for Git

I followed the tutorial and it all makes sense, but one thing. git bash only asked for passphrase the first time. Is it normal? I mean, if I run ssh-add -l, I can see the private key, but how about the passphrase? I can push/pull without typing it again...

Hi Luis, 

Since you are using SSH to access your repo, and your keys are loaded as you've mentioned by the ssh-add -l command, you don't need to add any passhphrase once this is implicit on the ssh keys. This is an expected behaviour.
