    Default Re: How do i delete an account from my gmail app

    Easiest: Go to Settings->Accounts. Go to the google account in question. Remove that account. Done.

    Back-up plan that always works: change the password on the account that you want to remove from the phone (you haven't changed your password for a while, right? it's time to do it). Your phone will fail to sync with the password. It effectively unlinks anything new from your account to your phone.

    Worst case: factory reset the phone and only add back what you need. Since almost everything is on the cloud right now you hopefully shouldn't lose a lot. Make sure you have backed up everything you store locally on the phone (e.g. pictures, videos, etc)
