    This is the problem I'm having, too. My brother needed to get to his email on my phone one night, so he just added his account. Now I can't remove it from my phone. I've tried going through the settings menu, and it takes me to the same screen as the gmail app account manager. I can and have turned off all the sync options, but I still kept getting annoying notifications that I needed to log back in, and now I have a notification that I can't get rid of that says there is "account action required." I can find no way, through the app itself or through my phone settings, to delete the account from my phone. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    I know EXACTLY what you are trying to say and none of the other responses work for the Note 3.... I went through hell myself trying to figure out how to delete a second linked gmail account and it was a ridiculous and very time consuming experience...

    BUT I figured out the answer - and it's so simple (it makes you want to slap yourself on the head after you find out how, even though they shouldn't have multiple "settings/options" buttons on a device.)

    Here are the steps to remove the unwanted account(s):

    1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon (located in the lower right hand side of the screen.)
    2. Tap Settings (NOT Google Settings).
    3. Tap Google.
    4. Tap the appropriate account that is to be removed.
    5. Tap the Menu/Menu Options button icon (located on the bottom of the phone, UNDER the screen on the actual phone, that is to the left of the main Home button) then tap Remove account.
    6. Tap Remove account to confirm.

    That's it! Now you will finally be free of this irritating issue!

    Thank you very much for this advice - worked right away and we were freed from our 70 minute trial and error, annoying, and fruitless experience with a poorly labeled function in the gmail app! Really appreciate your post!

    If you have more than one gmail account then to remove one of them go to setting on your phone look for accounts & sync. In there you should all email accounts that are setup on that phone. Touch the one you want to remove and at the bottom you should see remove account.

    I've been facing the same problem as I've 3 email accounts signed into my gmail and wanted to remove only one n was able to find a way to do so.(I'm using Samsung S7)

    First, you have to remove the email from your phone. This could be achieved by going to "Settings>Cloud&Accounts>Accounts>Google" then select the email you want to remove by clicking it and selecting "remove account" by pressing the 3 dots at the top right.
    This will remove the email from your phone but you can still see it in your gmail app.

    To remove it from the gmail app, you'll have to go to "Apps>Gmail" then click the 3 dots at the top right and "uninstall updates" and it'll be changed to factory version. Then go to the gmail app and you'll be able to log in again with the emails you want.
