    I have an Android 6.0 phone.

    Until the last update of my applications from the Google Store, I was able to freely delete the account I used to access the store after I was finished downloading/updating whatever I was using.

    After my last update, I now have a persistent message from the system every time I try to delete the account from the phone warning the operation is denied by system administrator.

    I have no admin access enabled.

    I've tried all always I could think of to remove the account from my phone, with always the same result.

    A factory reset will purge the account from the phone but the moment I access the Play Store and download the only two apps I use - Signal Messenger and Imgur - I get locked out.

    Whatever the cause may be, it must be tied to the google updates, that even if I disconnect all services, like I do, and disable all automatic updates, like I do as well, gets in the system.

    Can someone help with this?

    Welcome to Android Central! I recall a similar question recently -- it may be that an update to Google Play Services made this impossible. You can try going to Settings>Security>Clear Credentials​, and see if that does anything.
