How do I remove a Gmail account from my iPhone app?

Answer

To remove yourself from an existing phone or tablet, go to your profile picture in the top right corner of Gmail. Tap Manage accounts on this device, and then tap Remove from this device.

To remove a Gmail account from your iPhone app:

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select the account you want to delete. You’ll see a list of all your accounts here. Scroll down until you see the section with your Google apps like Gmail, Google Reader etc. There is a button that says “Delete Account” next to them. Tap on it (see screenshot above).

Please note: this will NOT delete any mail or other data associated with that account but only removes the reference from within the app so that it can no longer be used in Mailbox for iPhone .

If you removed the account from your phone but still see it in Mailbox for iPhone, please try logging out of Gmail on an iOS device.

Mailbox for iPhone has trouble detecting accounts that are logged into Gmail through Safari (or another browser). If you log out of Gmail using a web browser, then go back to Mailbox for iPhone, we should be able to detect that the account is gone and remove it.

Coming soon! Deleted accounts will no longer show up in Mailbox for iPhone . We’re working hard on this feature and it’s coming soon! Until then, if you delete an account via Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars then login Gmail again with Safari or another browser, we’ll be able to detect and remove it.

Tap on that event. You should now be looking at an individual event (see screenshot below). At this point, all options are editable except Remind Me . If you wish to keep this event then tap Add Reminder . Otherwise tap Delete Event .

Please note: deleting an event won’t delete the Gmail account from Mailbox for iPhone. So if you want to remove a Google account entirely then please proceed with deleting that account via Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars as explained in this article .
