Remove accounts from your Galaxy phone or tablet

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, tap Accounts and backup.

  2. Tap Accounts, and then select your Samsung account. 

  3. Tap Personal info and then tap More options.

    Note: If your device doesn't have a Personal info section, just tap More options.

  4. Tap Remove account

  5. Review the information, and then tap Remove.

  6. Enter your password to verify your identity, and then tap OK.

  2. Tap Accounts, and then select your Google account. 

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