Mac Time Machine: Does my disk store password in Key Chain or have no password?

I plug my disk into my El Capitan MacBook and it starts backing up, with no request for passwords. So, I need to find if I have none assigned OR if there is none.

How?

And if I want to remove the pw from the keychain, how do I do that?

Thanks

On my iPhone SE (6s) Keychain only backs up to iCloud. You cannot see what is in it. I expect the MAC implementation is the same.

Unless you chose the option to encrypt the backup, there is no password:  https://support.apple.com/kb/PH18852?locale=en_US

In that case, you can probably find the password by opening KeyChain Access on your Mac.

Keychain Access is found in /applications/utilities.  You can delete the password from within Keychain Access.
