How To Remove Google Account From Amazon Fire Tablet? [Solved]

There might be different reasons for removing a Google account from your Amazon Fire Tablet, but the most common one is that you created a new google account and now you want to remove your old account from your Amazon Fire tablet.

Alternatively, you want to sell your device and you want to make sure that it’s clean as a new one and no one can access your data.

In this tutorial, I will guide you through easy steps that will help you to solve your issue.

What’s The difference between removing a google account and deleting a Google account on Amazon Fire Tablet?

You should know that removing an account and deleting an account means different things. Removing a Google account from your Amazon Fire Tablet means that you will remove your Google access from this particular device but you will still be able to access it from any other device (such as your laptop or mobile phone). You just need to be aware that any data stored on your tablet will be lost (all settings or contacts etc).

Even though it sounds like a safe operation backing up your data won’t hurt you so I highly recommend doing so before proceeding with the next steps.

One thing that’s important to remember: You should be able to access the data folder in your Android’s root or primary location. The system folder is not accessible from inside the data folder on your Android’s external SDcard.
