How do I sign out of Google on my phone?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To sign out of your Google account on your Android phone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app: Look for the Settings app on your Android phone. It is usually represented by a gear icon. You can find it in your app drawer or you can swipe down from the top of the screen and tap on the gear icon in the notification panel.

2. Go to Accounts: In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Accounts” option. Tap on it to proceed.

3. Select your Google Account: In the Accounts menu, you will see a list of all the accounts linked to your device. Look for your Google Account and tap on it.

4. Remove the Google Account: Once you tap on your Google Account, you will see the account details and sync options. Look for the three-dot menu icon or the “More” option, usually located in the top-right corner of the screen. Tap on it and a dropdown menu will appear.

5. Tap on “Remove account”: In the dropdown menu, you will find the option to “Remove account.” Tap on it to log out of your Google Account.

6. Confirm the removal: A confirmation dialog will appear asking if you want to remove the account. Read the information carefully and make sure you understand the consequences of removing the account. If you still want to log out, tap on “Remove Account” or “OK” to confirm.

7. Wait for the process to complete: Your phone will now remove the Google Account from your device. This may take a few seconds, so wait for the process to complete.

Once the account is successfully removed, you will be signed out of all Google services on your Android phone. Keep in mind that removing the account will also remove any associated data, such as contacts, emails, and app data, from your device.

It’s important to note that signing out of your Google Account will not delete the account itself. You can still log back in at any time by adding the account again through the Settings menu.

In summary, to sign out of your Google Account on your Android phone, you need to go to the Settings app, select Accounts, tap on your Google Account, choose the “Remove account” option, confirm the removal, and wait for the process to complete.
