Removed google accounts can still remotely install apps
I have a problem with my android phone. During the holidays I added my mothers and girlfriends gmail-account to my android phone (android 4.0) so they could check their email at wifi points. Afterwards (about a week ago now) I removed their accounts again. So, there is no trace from their accounts left on my phone. However, I just noticed that when they go to the play store on a pc, they can still install apps! Even though they are not logged in to my phone! I tried it, and indeed, my phone started downloading the app.
Googling how to stop this did not turn up anything useful, so I'm quite desperate by now and hoping someone can help me with this. How do I disable their ability to install apps? I even added the accounts again to the phone, made sure all syncing was off, removed them (with all syncing off), and it still worked!

Re: Removed google accounts can still remotely install apps
Hmmm....I had my wife's account on my phone so tested removing it and then trying to remotely install an app from her account. And yep...it worked. I have reported it as a bug to Google, but am hoping one of the other ambassadors can verify that I'm not missing something.
