Earlier this morning we told you about a new feature that was included in the newest version of Google Play Services, which is rolling out to devices as we speak. The feature is called Smart Lock for Passwords, which will automatically sign you in to compatible applications, as long as you’ve saved your login credentials into Chrome. Since this feature is specific to Google Play Services version 7.5 and not Android M, starting today, everyone will get to take advantage of the new service.

To access all of your saved passwords in Smart Lock, simply head on over to passwords.google.com. This new interface allows you to easily manage, view and delete passwords without the need to do it on your smartphone. From here, you can also disable auto sign-in or Smart Lock altogether.

On the phone side of things, you can find your Smart Lock Passwords menu in your Google Settings. The new option can be found all the way on the bottom of the screen. From this page, you can disable Smart Lock for Passwords and auto sign-in as well, though you still need to head to the webpage if you want to manage your passwords.

Password managers are already some of the most handy applications out there, so it’s really nice to see Google bake this feature into Android. Google should be rolling out the new version of Play Services any minute now, so try to stay patient if you haven’t received the new feature yet.
