    Google Smart Lock
    Users have the option of safely storing their usernames and passwords in Chrome and Android TV as well as Android mobile and tablet apps using Smart Lock. This allows the user to automatically sign in using the credentials they opted to save. Users can manage saved credentials at passwords.google.com.

    Note:
    Users must have a Google account and be signed into a Google account on their Android device.
    Amazon Fire OS and Fire TV do not have access to Google Smart Lock because Google Play Services is not integrated.
