Remove Google Account from HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to remove a Google account from an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and hold down until the two lock icons appear at the bottom.
Then swipe up.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen will be several icons.
We now need to find the Settings menu. To do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.
Press down at the top of the screen, hold down, and swipe down.
Now, the Notification panel has appeared.
We are looking for the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
It is a white cog icon, and it is our Settings icon.
Press down on that icon, and it will open up the "Settings" menu.
The menu has the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Scroll down to the "PERSONAL" section, as indicated by the word "PERSONAL" in the gray bar.
In that section, we want the second option, "Accounts & sync".
Next to those words is the "Accounts & sync" icon, which is a circle with two arrows circling around it.
Press down on "Accounts & sync", and it will open up that menu.
We want to demonstrate how to remove a Google account from the HTC One M8.
Press down on the word "Google" at the top of the menu to open the Google account.
As we can see, we have one account synced to this HTC One M8.
Under the word "ACCOUNTS" at the top left of the screen, it shows the name of the account, "VisiHow@gmail.com".
We want to remove this account. Maybe there are multiple accounts on the HTC One M8, and we want to remove them. Perhaps we bought the phone second hand, or someone gave us the phone as a gift. If there were already accounts on that phone, we may want to remove them.
First, press the icon on the right side of the screen across from the account name.
There are three small gray squares in a horizontal row.
Press down on that icon, and it will open a short menu.
Tap on the second option, which says "Remove".
Now, a message will appear.
Be warned that this is a very serious option. It says, "Removing this account will delete all of its messages, contacts, and other data from the phone."
If we definitely want to do this, just press "REMOVE ACCOUNT" at the bottom right of the message screen.
That will remove the account. We might be asked to clarify this one more time as well just to be sure we want to do this.
This concludes our tutorial on how to remove a Google account from an HTC One M8.
