When switching to a new smartphone, there is always concern about passwords to access the most diverse websites.
In this article, we show you two simple and secure ways to transfer all the passwords saved on the old device to the new device, with minimal effort.
1. Google services are the simplest way
Android users have an email address and use the Chrome browser on their smartphones. In the latter service, if you choose this option, a large portion of your passwords will be stored. Platforms like Instagram, Zoom, etc. have authentication data saved in the browser.
The first step is to activate account data synchronization on the smartphone itself. To do this, simply go to the settings menu and go to the Google section. Then choose Autofill and then Autofill with Google. Through this step, all passwords will be safely transferred to the Google cloud.
Then just sign in to your Google account on your new Android smartphone to access all the passwords that were used on the previous device.
However, you should keep in mind that some smartphone brands, such as Samsung for example, have their own security systems for storing passwords.
2. Password management applications
Another way to protect passwords is to use applications that manage passwords on any technology device.
LastPass has a free version with limited features, but it can serve the purpose if you change from an old smartphone to a new one. It also has a premium plan that, in addition to letting you manage passwords, also offers 1GB of encrypted file storage space.
In contrast, 1Password has an individual plan available with a paid subscription that allows you to use the service on all your devices as well as access 1GB of secure file storage.
