Hi gurus,

I have a Samsung S4 Active with Android version 5.0.1. A friend of mine logged into my phone with his google account, everything was fine but now I want to get rid of his account but can´t find the option to do it. I went to settings ----->accounts¨ and can see his account¨but there is no option to remove it from my phone. How can I do this? I will appreciate your help.

Hi. I am not sure how samsung works now. I used to have an Galaxy Pocket. I have to do a reset to remove the google account.
Try this: settings>accounts> , click on google account, when you see his gmail there click on it. See if you find that 3 point upper right side. The same three point you access your favorites of google chrome.
Try to see if there is an option to remove account.
My aunt has a LG tablet and it does not allow too.... My Sony Xperia allows me to remove without reset the device

Go to settings - general - accounts, click that account, then click Menu button.
In the pop-up menu, please select 'Remove account'.
Good luck to you. :D

Thank you all for your answers. I already tried that move but the menu button ( 3 dots) is not available. I don´t know if it has to do with the android version (5.0.1) but I have seen different Android phones and they all have this option. Maybe there is another way to delete the account, but so far I can´t find it. If you have another idea, please let me know so I can give a try.

Just go to settings of your phone and open accounts. From there you can delete your any account.

This is the steps to deleted a google account:

Step 1. Launch the Settings application on the Home screen and then select Accounts in this section.

Step 2. Now you will see several accounts are listed on the screen. You can tap on Google here and choose your account.

Step 3. Next, you need to click the menu icon, namely the "..." icon at the top right corner. This will bring a window with two options. Just elect Remove account in the window.

Step 4. Then you should confirm your option by taping on the Remove account icon in the pop-up window. Now the Gmail account is deleted on your phone and all the files in it will be removed from the device as well.
