Every time you sign in to an app or website on Android, a pop-up appears asking you to save the credentials. By pressing the save button and selecting the Google account, the system will not only save the username and password, but also auto-fill them the next time you log in.
Autofill works even on your computer if you are using the same Google account. In addition to automatically completing the fields, Google PasswordManager also allows you to manage the passwords saved in Android.
When you use autofill frequently, you may forget the password for a website or app. Fortunately, Google PasswordManager save all credentials.

ANDROID | How to improve privacy
The first thing we recommend is to uninstall the applications of Android not used. These applications, although not used, can still run in the background, collect and then share your personal data. You can uninstall them from Google Play without problems.
Another tip is to check the app permissions on Android. To do this, go to Settings, then Privacy & Security, then Permissions Manager. In the case of location data, later versions of Android allow you to limit its accuracy to allow you to get close results but without revealing your precise location.
