When enabled, you'll be asked if you'd like Smart Lock to save your login data every time you sign in into a website using Chrome or Android.

Also, note that if you have multiple Chrome accounts signed in you will be asked to choose which account will save the information. You can browse your saved passwords whenever you like in Chrome's settings as well as google.com.
