If you’ve had enough of trying to manage your Gmail accounts and want to erase your Google account from your iPad, open the Gmail app, and tap on the profile picture.

In the following window, tap on the Delete your Google Account option. You’ll be asked to sign in to your account. To the side of where it says Gmail, tap on the Delete option and follow the on-screen instructions.
Before erasing your account, keep in mind that no one can use your Gmail address in the future. Your Gmail emails and settings will be gone. By erasing your Gmail account, you’ll still have your activity since only the Gmail service will be erased.
Google has a great email service, but there’s always a reason to want to erase one or all your accounts. Depending on what device you’re on, the steps might vary slightly, but they’re still easy to follow. Did you find a better email service? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
