Android 8 Oreo: How to use autocomplete passwords

Android 8 Oreo has a native password manager that allows you to automatically populate applications to sign in. The feature works with third-party services such as LastPass, as well as the Google Safe, which offers a free cloud to store information. With the feature enabled, your smartphone logs in to any app that already has the previously recorded password. Here's how to use the tool that completes forms for you on Android.
