Location for saving login data like passwords

Hello there,
I am new here in the xamarin forum. We are developing a app with a amazon cloud backend. We want to manage the user accounts with cognito. All right so far.

The user needs to log in and receive a token via cognito. It works perfect and everything is all right. But we got a question. How can we store the password localy on the device so that the user does not to tipe in the password everytime when he wants to use our app. I am sure that it is a risk to store passwords. But I think there is a practical solution for that. Can someone help me store credentials on the device? We develope the most parts with xamarin plattform independend. Targets are IOs and Android.

Thank you for information and help.
Greetings chris00r
