    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.
