    I am trying to set third party email account. I downloaded the app for that email account, NOT going through gmail app. I would like my phone to remember password for that account, so that I do not have to log in every time. However, I DO NOT want the passwords to be stored anywhere on the Google or their servers, and NOT in Chrome. Just locally on my device, preferably so that Google does not have any way to access it there. Is there such a solution? Same question for the other apps that have login. Is there a way to store their passwords on the phone locally only without exposing them to Google in any way?

    Thanks very much

    Hi best method is remember password by your self.
    How to do this?
    I created this app to use for myself, I can use it to create password for all my account using my pattern.
    I just remember the pattern + hash method -> I can get my password back any time.

    - My password pattern is [My secret simple key] + [Login service name]
    - My hash method is SHA-256

    - I choose my secret is HMT so I will have some patterns is HMTFacebook, HMTAndroidForum, HMTTwitter
    - I hash all of them with SHA-256 so I will get the password is:

    My Facebook password: 126481d646180c2c27d76e40b5770d663a11a5789533102ed1645cae95c95ac9
    My AndroidForum password: 9b7aa82591b6cbb74a29a95d8326628de3f8313ce5119c0795ba11cf4cf6b2e9
    My HMTTwitter password: 5ab89e78063bbe8433cc4078add145c95afe2f06dd354d4128b7899d42d323c8

    That is strong, but cannot guess. You can create this perfect sauce, but no one can find out how did you cook it.
