    To unlock the phone, we swipe the screen upwards.
    Once the phone is unlocked, we will see the Home screen; and there will be icons at the bottom of the screen. We need to access one of these icons now as we need to open up the applications folder.

    We need to tap the "Apps" icon in the middle.
    The icon is located at the bottom of the home screen. The icon has a grid made up of white dots. Tapping this icon will open up our applications folder.

    In the applications folder, we need to find and tap the Google Settings application icon.
    The icon has a gray cog with the "g" inside of it and "Google Settings" written underneath. The Google Settings application may be in a different position in the application folder. Therefore, we need to find and tap it. Tapping the icon will open up the application.

    We need the first option at the top.
    It says, "Smart Lock for Passwords and Connected Accounts" and "Allow the passwords of your apps and websites to be saved to your Google account. When disabled, no passwords will be saved or returned from this account." Right now the option is activated because the icon next to it is turquoise. What that means then is that passwords for applications and web sites will be saved to our Google account. Not just to our HTC One M8 but to actual Google account, which we can access from any device.

    If we want to disable the "Smart Lock for Passwords and Connected Accounts" option, and we don't want to save any passwords to our Google account, then we can tap the icon next to the option.
    This will turn the option off and deactivate it. The icon will become gray. This means that the option next to it is deactivated.
