    Default GMail account profiles, N4 and N7

    My son uses the Nexus 7 and I have the Nexus 7. We share the same profile because I don't want to pay twice for apps, etc...
    How do I remove gMail emails from his N7, gallery photos, etc...which are all relevant to my main gMail account?

    Naughty, naughty, naughty. As an occasional developer myself, I would have to say that depriving these guys of a measly few dollars is naughty, naughty, naughty. May you suffer for eternity in heck under the weight of a fat, bloated sex partner who never actually gets you off...

    Having said that, just open the GMail app, tap menu -> Settings -> <account name> -> Gmail sync is ON -> <account name>. You should see a bunch of checkboxes which let you choose which items to sync.

    I took the checkmarks off of sync, but when I went into gmail I still noticed all of the old emails there still as well as the Gallery pics. How do I completely get rid of the old info in these apps?

    Umm... Did you try just going into those apps and deleting the offending items?

    Do a few first, then check your GMAIL account online or your other device to ensure they did not get deleted from there as well (they shouldn't, if you disabled sync as you said you did).

    I recommend you install perfect app protector and locking the apps you dont want others to use. even if you disable sync, gamil app will sync when you open it.

    so the only option is perfect app protector. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...on.applocklite
    set a password and lock the app so your son cannot use it.

    Hmmm... So it does.

    From the same screen with all the checkboxes (in Gmail), he can tap the Menu icon then tap Remove Account. In Gallery, tap Menu -> Settings -> etc to remove the account there as well.

    But really, given the risk of eternity spent beneath a fat, bloated sex partner who never gets you off, wouldn't it be easier and better to just set up a separate Google Play account and pay an extra few bucks for those apps?
