Ask for confirmation when starting without unlocking the persistent storage
During the user testing of the Additional Software beta, 3 participants out of 5 missed the new field to unlock the “Encrypted Persistent Storage” when restarting with a persistent storage for the first time:
- 2 of them restarted without seeing it.
- 1 of them saw it right before restarting.
They would probably easily learn from their mistake for the next time. Still, P4 missed it a second time :)
If we assume that people who have a persistent storage want to unlock it in the vast majority of cases, it could be worth asking for confirmation before starting without unlocking the persistent storage in case one is detected.
That might save some of our users a bunch of restarts.

It could look like this:
On top of this, it would be awesome to have some GNOME way of highlighting the passphrase field or something like that. I couldn’t find easily how to do this in Gtk but if there’s already a predefined way of doing these things, we should do it. Otherwise forget it.
