How to Sign Out Of Google on Android and Desktop

Sign Out Of Google Featured

The Android platform is synonymous with Google, and as soon as you unwrap your Android phone, the first thing Google wants is for you to sign in with your Google account and sync up.

But maybe you don’t want to constantly be watched over by Google – on phone or on your PC. Or maybe your phone’s been stolen, and you want to make extra-sure no one can access your data (though a PIN should really be your first line of defense). Whatever your situation, here’s how to log out of your Google account on Android and desktop.

Sign out of Google on Desktop Browser

On your computer, the means by which you stay “always connected” to Google is through your browser.

Therefore, if you want to sign out of Google, you’ll need to open a Google service through your browser – we are using Gmail as an example – and sign out through that.

With Gmail open in your browser, click your profile icon at the top-right corner, then click “Sign out of all accounts.”

That’s it, you’re now signed out of Google in your browser, and you’ll find that when you try to open other services, like Google Drive or Google Docs, you’ll need to sign in afresh.

Click “Remove Account” on the final screen. It will warn you that this will delete messages, contacts and other data from the phone. Don’t worry – you can always get these back should you sign in again.
