Remove accounts from your Galaxy phone or tablet

A Google account's settings page displayed on a Note20

Clear out all the old baggage. You can remove an account from your Galaxy phone or tablet 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.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

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.

  1. From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup

  2. Tap Manage accounts, and then select your Samsung account. 

  3. Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account on the popup.

  4. Tap Sign out. Enter your Samsung account password, 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.

  1. From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup

  2. Tap Manage accounts, and then select your Google account. 

  3. Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account again to confirm.

  4. If you have Google device protection features enabled, you may be asked to verify your identity before you can fully log out of your account.

  1. From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup.

  2. Tap Manage accounts, and then select your email account. 

  3. Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account again to confirm.
