If you create file $HOME/.secretrc with content: MASTER_PASSWORD=yourpassword
Secret will use that password instead of prompting one. This is useful for automatically encrypting files for backup purposes. You could have your backup script running in the background and before copying the files to a remote server (e.g rsync) you could let Secret to encrypt the files.
Secret will complain if $HOME/.secretrc is found and has permissions more than 0600. You should do chmod 600 $HOME/.secretrc.
