A Google account for which you don’t have (or forgot) the password is useless to you, so you will want to delete it from your device. This article will show you how to remove a Google account without a password from a Samsung phone.
Adding a Google account makes your Android phone easier to use and more secure, but in some cases, you may want to remove it from your phone. For example, you’ve lost access to your Google account and can’t recover it, your phone is linked to someone else’s Google account, you intend to sell your phone, and so on. Without further ado, let’s take a look at how to remove Google account without password from Samsung or other brands of android phones.
When you can access your Android phone normally, removing the Google account does not require a password. In other words, even if you don’t know (or forgot) the password of the Google account, you can delete the account from your phone’s Settings. Proceed as follows:
Step 1: Open your Samsung phone and go to Settings > Accounts and Backup > Accounts.
Step 2: When you get to the Accounts page, tap the Google account you want to remove from your phone. On the next page, tap Remove account, tap Remove account again to continue, and then tap OK to confirm.
If there are two or more Google accounts on your Samsung phone, the selected Google account will be removed immediately without requiring you to enter any password.
If this is the only Google account on your Samsung phone, then you will be asked to enter your phone’s current lock screen password/PIN/pattern, if any, to confirm the deletion.
If you are in the case where someone else’s Google account is logged into your phone and you can’t remove it from your phone’s Settings, try a remote deletion. What you need to do is get in touch with the owner of the Google account and ask him to do the following.
Step 1: Sign in to the Google account from any web browser on the computer and go to the page https://myaccount.google.com/device-activity.
Step 2: The page shows all the devices on which the Google account is currently signed in. Click the Samsung phone from which you want to remove the Google account.
Step 3: On the next page, click Sign out and click Sign out again, so that the Google account will be disconnected from your Samsung phone.
If for some reason you can’t remove your Google account from your phone’s settings or elsewhere, iSumsoft Android Password Refixer will help. This tool allows you to effortlessly and permanently remove your Google account from your Samsung phone without a password.
Some people try to delete the Google account through a factory reset, but this is actually to no avail on Android OS version 5.1 and higher. Because if the Google account is not removed from the phone prior to the factory reset, the phone will be locked by Google’s Factory Reset Protection (FRP) feature. This means that the phone will still ask for the previous Google account and password after factory reset. That is to say, the phone cannot be used without the previous Google account and password. If this has happened to you, iSumsoft Android Password Refixer will also be the best solution.
In either case, you just need to install the iSumsoft Android Password Refixer on your Windows computer, and then follow the steps below.Download
1. Connect the Samsung phone to your computer via a USB cable. Be sure to use a good USB cable, because poor contact may cause the software not to recognize the phone.
2. Open iSumsoft Android Password Refixer. Then you will need to click the Install button at the top of the interface (if it is displayed) to install the specific USB driver required by the software to detect the phone.
Tips: If there is no installation prompt, it means that the required driver is already installed on your computer, and you can go directly to the next step.
The software provides two different options. To remove a Google account without a password from your phone, just select the “Unlock Google Lock (FRP)” option. When you get to the next page, simply click the Start button to proceed.
Now you need to enter your device information and let the software download the Android firmware package needed to remove the Google account.
Therefore, what you need to do is to enter your device model and country code in the corresponding text fields, then select a download path and decompression path for the firmware package to be downloaded, and finally click the Download button to start downloading the firmware package.
Wait patiently for the firmware download to complete. This will take a few minutes, depending on the internet speed of your computer. When the download is complete, the software automatically extracts the firmware package to the path you have just specified for use.
When the firmware package is ready, the software will ask you to follow the steps on the screen to put your phone into Download mode, as shown in the figure below. Just follow the steps on the screen.
Once your phone gets into the Downloading mode screen, click the Start button in the lower right corner of the software interface.
After clicking the Start button in the previous step, the software immediately starts deleting the Google account without a password from your phone. All that’s left is to wait for the account deletion to complete. It will take a few minutes.
When the software informs you that your Google account has been successfully removed, you are done. Then you can open your phone and log in with a new or different Google account.
