How do I remove an email address from Gmail app?

Answered by John Hunt

To remove an email address from the Gmail app, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Gmail app on your device. This can typically be found on your home screen or in your app drawer.

2. Once the app is open, you will see your profile thumbnail or picture in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it.

3. A menu will appear with various options. Look for and tap on “Manage accounts on this device.” This will take you to the settings page where you can manage your accounts.

4. On the accounts page, you will see a list of all the email accounts that are currently set up on your device. Find the account that you want to remove and tap on it.

5. After tapping on the account, you will see a new page with various account options. Look for and tap on the option that says “Remove from this device.” This will initiate the process of removing the account from the Gmail app.

6. A confirmation message will appear asking if you really want to remove the account. Read through the message and make sure you understand the consequences of removing the account. If you’re sure you want to proceed, tap on the “Remove” button.

7. Once you tap on “Remove,” the account will be removed from the Gmail app on your device. You will no longer see emails or notifications from that account in the app.

It’s important to note that removing an email account from the Gmail app on your device does not delete the actual email account itself. It only removes the account from the app and stops syncing emails and notifications. If you want to completely delete the email account, you will need to do so through the email provider’s website or app.

Removing an email address from the Gmail app is a simple process that can be done in a few steps. Just remember to be cautious and double-check before removing an account to avoid any unintended consequences.
