mkdir ~/.config/autostart/
cp /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-gpg.desktop ~/.config/autostart/
echo 'Hidden=true' >> ~/.config/autostart/gnome-keyring-gpg.desktop

As far as I know, there is no GUI to do this in modern GNOME.  It used
to be possible through gnome-session-properties, but there is no way to
do the same with gnome-tweak-tool.
