Well, removal of the Google account from the Android phone is as easy as adding it. In future, if you want to add this deleted account then you can add it again as well without in hassle.

However, before removing the account from the Android phone, you must know that the apps you purchased from the Google Play Store using the account you’re about to delete will be lost and thus you won’t be able to access them.

Removing the account from Android phone

Removing a Google account from Android phone is quite simple and easy.

1. Head over to the Settings of your phone

2. Select Account

3. Select Google


4. In the next step, you would see the names of all those Google accounts you have added to your Android device previously.

5. Now select the one you want to delete.


6. Now select the three vertically stacked dots provided on the top right corner and select Remove account.

7. A new message box will appear that will remind you that deleting this account will delete all of its messages, contacts, and other data from the phone. If you're fine with it then select Remove account and it will successfully be deleted.


Note : you may find difficulty in removing the primary account from the phone. This occurs because it is the main account you used to setup your device. In such case, first, add a new Gmail account and then try removing it. If this doesn't work then do a factory reset. But it should be noted that a factory reset will remove everything from your phone, so you better take the back up first.

I want a few tips for syncing my mobile Gmail app with my desktop application. It's not happening. For example, if I delete an email from my mobile, it still stays on my desktop app. I have to remove it from there again.
