Remove accounts from your Galaxy phone

Clear out all the old baggage. You can remove an account from your Galaxy phone if you're no longer using it, or if you don't want it associated with your device anymore. Just remember: after it has been removed, you will not have access to any of the account's data unless you add the account back again.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.

Remove a Samsung account

Removing a Samsung account is different than permanently deleting your account. When you remove a Samsung account it's temporary; you can always add it back later.

Remove a Samsung account

From Settings, tap Accounts and backup. Tap Accounts, and then select your Samsung account. Next, tap Personal info, and then tap the More options icon (the three vertical dots). Tap Remove account. Review the information, and then tap Remove. Enter your password to verify your identity, and then tap OK.

Remove a Google account

Just like with a Samsung account, you can remove your Google account as well. The steps are similar, and the process is just as easy.

Remove a Google account

From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup. Tap Accounts, and then select your Google account. Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account again to confirm.

Remove an email account

Maybe you just got a new job, so you have a new email address. No worries, you can remove email accounts on your phone too.
