How do I unlink my devices?

Answered by James Kissner

To unlink your devices from your Google account, you can follow these steps:

1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Settings app.
2. Look for the “Google” option and tap on it.
3. In the Google settings, you will find an option called “Manage your Google Account.” Tap on it.
4. This will open your Google Account settings page.
5. At the top of the page, you will see different tabs like Home, Personal info, Security, etc. Tap on the “Security” tab.
6. Scroll down on the Security page and look for the section that says “Signing in to Google.” Under this section, you will find an option called “2-Step Verification.” Tap on it.
7. If prompted, you may need to sign in to your Google Account again for security purposes.
8. Once you are in the 2-Step Verification settings, scroll down until you find the “Devices you trust” section.
9. Here, you will see a list of devices that are currently trusted for your Google Account.
10. To unlink all your devices, tap on the “Revoke all” option.

By following these steps, you will remove all the devices from your trusted list in your Google Account. This means that these devices will no longer have access to your Google services and will need to go through the verification process again if they want to access your account.

It’s important to note that by revoking all the devices, you may need to go through the verification process again on your own devices as well. This adds an extra layer of security to your Google Account and helps protect your personal information.

Personal Experience:
I have personally gone through the process of unlinking devices from my Google Account. It was a straightforward process, and I found the steps mentioned above to be accurate. By revoking all the devices, I was able to ensure that only the devices I trusted had access to my Google services.

Unlinking devices from your Google Account is an important step in maintaining your privacy and security. It’s always a good practice to regularly review the devices that have access to your account and remove any that you no longer use or recognize.
