Sync passwords across your devices

You can sign in with your saved passwords on different devices using Smart Lock for Passwords. Smart Lock syncs your passwords to your Google Account when you're signed in on Chrome or on your Android.

An app or site's password won't show up on other apps or sites. Learn more about managing your website passwords.
