When you buy a new Android smartphone, the first thing you will do is sign in with your Google account. This forms the core of the whole OS since all the data that you end up saving gets tied to this account. If you possess multiple google accounts, its possible to actually sign into all of them on your smartphone. This way, you get quick access to the content on specific accounts directly on your smartphone.

If there ever comes a time where you do not need a specific account on your smartphone, the best solution is to remove it from your device.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to remove a Google Account from an Android smartphone.

Do keep in mind, when you remove an Account from your Android device, you lose all the data linked to that device including photos, documents, and contacts as well.
