Deleting an email account from your Android device is a simple and straightforward process. Whether you no longer use the account or want to remove it for other reasons, follow the steps below to delete an email account on Android.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

The first step in deleting an email account on Android is to access the settings of your device. To do this, locate and tap on the Settings app on your home screen or app drawer.

Step 2: Navigating to Accounts

Once you are in the settings menu, scroll down until you find the Accounts option and tap on it. This will open a list of all accounts associated with your Android device.

Step 3: Selecting the Email Account

In the accounts menu, locate and tap on the email account that you want to delete. This will open the account settings page for that specific email account.

Step 4: Removing the Email Account

On the account settings page, look for the option that says Remove Account. The placement of this option may vary depending on your device and Android version. Tap on Remove Account.


If you have multiple email accounts on your Android device, be careful not to accidentally remove any accounts that are still in use.

Step 5: Confirming Removal

A confirmation dialog box will appear, asking if you really want to remove the selected email account from your Android device. Review carefully and then tap on Remove Account once again to confirm.


Deleting an email account will remove all associated emails and data from your Android device. Make sure to back up any important data before proceeding.

Step 6: Account Successfully Removed

After confirming the removal, your Android device will remove the email account from its system. You will no longer be able to access this email account from any built-in email apps or other services on your device.

Congratulations! You have successfully deleted an email account from your Android device. If you ever need to add another email account in the future, simply follow the same steps but select Add Account instead of Remove Account.

Remember, managing your email accounts on Android is a breeze with these simple steps. Keep your device organized and remove any unnecessary accounts to streamline your digital life.
