How To Turn Off Google Smart Lock
On average, mobile users unlock their phones up to 110 times a day. It can be a real hassle, especially during the busiest hours of your day. That is why Google came up with Google Smart Lock for devices associated with Google. It is a useful feature to balance between security and convenience.The downside of this feature, though, is that there’s no master password to it. This essentially means anybody with access to your computer could find your passwords. Also, the number of apps that support Smart Lock is very less. Another reason users disable Smart Lock is the trust factor they place on Google.
