One or more systems and/or methods for storing personal information within a first device and/or for providing personal information from the first device to the second device are provided. The first device (e.g., a smartphone) may identify a user interface (e.g., a movie streaming website) populated with user specified data (e.g., a password). The user specified data may be evaluated to identify personal information of the user (e.g., a movie streaming website password). The personal information may be stored within the first device. Responsive to determining that a second device (e.g., a smart television) displays a personal information input field (e.g., a movie streaming website password input field), an input event comprising the personal information may be provided from the first device to the second device. The input event may invoke the second device to input the movie streaming website password into the movie streaming website password input field.
