Turn Off Google Smart Lock Settings

Select the time on your Chromebook's bottom right. Choose Settings. Select your Android phone under "Connected devices." If the status of your request remains "Pending" a few minutes after connecting with your phone, choose Verify to make another request. When Smart Lock is triggered, you'll get a notice on your phone. If you are unable to unlock your device using your Android phone, ensure that both your phone and your Chromebook meet the following requirements:

Apart from being limited to Chrome, Smart Lock lacks a password generator and a separate user interface. As a result, it got me thinking. Is Smart Lock's convenience worth the cost? Or, more precisely, am I to trust Google with my passwords? If you have the same reservations, deactivating Google's Smart Lock is not difficult. Therefore, let us examine how to do this.

The instructions below should be applicable regardless of who manufactured your Android phone: Samsung, Google, Huawei, or Xiaomi, for example.

Navigate to Settings > Security > Advanced > Trust agents and switch on Smart Lock. On some phone models, the Trust Agents setting may be located in a slightly different location. Tap the magnifying glass at the top of the Settings screen to locate Trust Agents. Then, while still in the Security settings, type Smart Lock. Enter your password, unlock pattern, or pin code, or use your fingerprint, then tap Smart Lock. You may activate On-body detection, add Trusted venues and Trusted devices, and configure Voice Match from this screen. After you've configured Smart Lock, you'll see a pulsating circle around the lock icon at the bottom of your lock screen.
