    I have a Samsung s6. My daughter just purchased the same phone a few days ago. She signed into my google calendar using my yahoo email account on her phone. now she has my contacts on her phone, and when she downloaded Google Wallet to her phone, I got the "Welcome" email. How do I completely remove my account information (and contacts) from her phone? Thank you so much for any help you can give

    Go into settings, accounts, and remove your account.

    If your account is the default account, the one used during initial setup of the phone when you got it, then your account cannot be removed - except by doing a factory reset of the phone. A reset will remove all your information, and the phone will go through initial setup again. This time, your daughter can register with her account and all will be as it should.

    I am trying to remember or figure how your daughter can access your Google Calendar with your Yahoo account.

    Anyway, if you delete the Yahoo account on hers also, it might be allowed to access your contacts as it could with my Yahoo account (but not allowed)

    Ok, thanks, Everybody. I think a factory reset sounds like the cleanest solution. I'll let you know how it goes.
    I had set up the google calendar a few months ago, and tried to share it with her via email invite, but kept getting delivery failure responses. So to expedite the sharing, I gave her my log in info for google for her to use on her computer to check the calendar. That's how the whole mess started.
    Still can't get the invite to through via email, and we need to share the calendar.

    You can share calendars without others needing to add your account to their device.

    Login to your Calendar with a browser. If you do it on your phone, switch to the desktop version, the mobile site won't work.

    Go to Settings, click on the Calendars tab and on the right side under Sharing click on Share this calendar.

    On the page that opens under Share with specific people enter the email address of the person you want to share with.

    Then to the right select the permissions you wish to grant them. Click Save and you're done.

    The calendar will now sync to them with the selected permissions.

    Thanks for that, Crashdamage, but I did that twice and kept getting a delivery failure notice in my email. Maybe I don't understand, how does she actually access my calendar? I thought it was by email invite.

    No email needed. Just follow the steps I gave exactly. It does work, we share calendars that way.
