How to Remove Account from Gmail – 5 Simple Steps

It is obvious that you may have more than one Gmail accounts. Having multiple Gmail accounts in your android makes information overload and removing the account is the way out to this problem.

It is important to know what account removal means and what are its outcomes. Removing an account is something different from deleting an account permanently.

Removing an account does not delete it permanently, it will simply not be accessible on your phone. You can’t access any Google services with that account and you need another Google account to use services like Play Store, YouTube, Gmail, Photos, etc. You will not lose information like emails, photos, and files associated with that account.

You can still access your removed Google account just by signing in using your login credentials.

The procedure to remove an account may slightly vary from device to device or Android version.

Keeping those things in your mind, here’s how to remove account from Gmail in your android phone.
