Gadgetren – In order to be able to use various kinds of features and services more fully, we generally need to link Google or Gmail account to a mobile phone running the Android operating system.

We, for example, need this to download applications from the Play Store, access email services, use Meet, watch YouTube shows, and use the Maps location tracker.

Therefore, we also need to reset to factory conditions when we are going to sell or give Android phones to other people. If not, then various kinds of data and personal information related to the Gmail account can be leaked.

The good news for those of you who forget to do that, there is a feature provided by Google to delete a Gmail account on another cellphone. We can take advantage of it even if the device in question is elsewhere.

This feature can be used very easily as long as we still remember the password. For those of you who don’t know, here’s a complete explanation of the steps to delete a Gmail account on another cellphone.
