If you don't customize @code{auth-sources}, the auth-source library
reads @file{~/.authinfo.gpg}, which is a GnuPG encrypted file. Then
it will check @file{~/.authinfo} but it's not recommended to use such
an unencrypted file.
If the @code{auth-sources} variable contains @file{~/.authinfo.gpg}

The default will get login and password information from

packages to be encrypted. If that file doesn't exist, it will
try the unencrypted version \"~/.authinfo\" and the famous

Each entry is the authentication type with optional properties.

See Info node `(auth)Help for users' for details.
It's best to customize this with `M-x customize-variable' because the choices
can get pretty complex."
