It simply because it Just Works (TM) with those 3 lines which I have in
my .emacs file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  ;; EasyPG Assistant
  (with-eval-after-load "epa-file"
    (setq epa-file-encrypt-to "address@hidden")
    (setq epa-file-cache-passphrase-for-symmetric-encryption t))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
