Trying to remember all your passwords continues to be one of today's biggest tech issues that we all face. Password management tools to help with this problem are being developed by a large number of companies.

You can add Google to the list with their 'Smart Lock' feature that works on Android devices, Chromebooks and with Chrome browsers on your various devices.

You have been able to save a password in your computer's browser for years, but when you pick up your smartphone to access the same site, you'll have to remember your password again.

The 'Google Smart Lock' option is designed to give you a way to sync up your passwords, so when you save passwords on your smartphone, they will be saved on your computer as well and vice versa.

Their Android app is also designed to keep your phone unlocked when it is in a safe place by recognizing variables like location, your other trusted devices or even from your voice and then lock things down when it appears that it may not be safe.

It can help reduce the frustrating forgotten password scenario on your regularly used devices.
