    Whenever I try to log into my Facebook or Twitter or other social apps, the Google Smart Lock automatically fills in the credentials. I don't want that, it's annoying and alarming cause if someone else has my phone they could get into my accounts pretty easily! I did turn off Google Smart Lock under settings>security>trust agents but that didn't seem to work! What else can I do?

    The Smart Lock you turned off is a different thing -- that just keeps the phone unlocked based on your Trusted Location or connection to a Trusted Device.

    The Google Smart Lock (I know, confusing terminology) has more to do with auto sign-in for websites. Try these steps to turn it off: https://support.google.com/accounts/...DAndroid&oco=1

    Thanks! The interface was a bit different in my case but it was there. To stop that feature I had to turn off "offer to save passwords" entirely and it worked. Thanks a lot for your help!

    You can use an app overlay for your apps, browser and play store. It is called AppLock or AppLock may be housed in a antivirus security suite. What it does is ask you for a pin number to get into your sensitive app or web browser or page. If the person doesn't know it - they can't get into your app. It is a background with a small pic of your app and a box asking for a four digit pin. If entered correctly the app opens and the overlay disappears.
