On your device running Android, you can add accounts so that information associated with that account automatically syncs with your device. You need to have an account set up on your device in order to get apps from the Google Play store.

If you're using a device with multiple users, each user has separate account settings so make sure you’re logged in as the correct user before adding or removing any account information.

You can also remove an account you've added to your device. When you do so, everything associated with that account, including email, contacts, and settings, will also be deleted.



Add an account on your device:

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings on your device
  2. Under "Accounts," touch Add account.
  3. Touch “Google" if you want to add your Google Account. When you sign in with a Google Account, all the email, contacts, Calendar events, and other data associated with that account are automatically synced with your device.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to add the account.


Remove an account from your device:

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings on your device.
  2. Under "Accounts," touch “Google” and then the account.
  3. Touch the Menu icon in the top right corner of the screen.
  4. Touch Remove account.
