I need to deactivate a gmail account (from Google Play) but I can no log into it anymore.


AC Question

My gmail account (linked to my Google Play) has been cancelled and replaced by a second gmail account. I still can access my Google Play but I keep getting a notification on my phone about signing in my old account. I cannot do so as this first gmail account does not belong to me anymore, and I cannot log in. What can I do?

Hi, why does it no longer belong to you? who now owns it? if it's a family member can you ask them to log in for you?
