How To Remotely Sign Out Of Gmail From Other Devices
You can access your Gmail account from multiple devices and stay logged in simultaneously. Although convenient, it also poses a great security risk if you lose access to a device you are logged in. For example, if you access your Gmail account from a public device and forgot to logout. Anyone with access to this device will be able to access your Gmail account and even other Google services.
Thankfully, Google makes it really easy to sign out remotely from all the connected devices using a PC or mobile phone. In this post, I’ll show you how to remotely sign out of Gmail from any device on your desktop and Android phone.
Remotely sign out of Gmail using desktop
You can sign out of Gmail using Google account settings. Just open Gmail (or any other Google product) on the desktop and follow the below instructions:
Click on your profile picture at the top-right corner and select “Manage your Google Account” from it.
Now select “Security” in the left panel and then scroll down and click on “Manage devices” under the “Your devices” section.
Here you will find all the devices you are currently logged in.
Click on the device you want to sign out from and then click on the “Sign out” button and confirm the prompt.
That’s it, you will be logged out of the particular device and you will have to provide the password to log in again on that device. You can repeat this process to log out of all the other connected devices if needed.
Remotely sign out of Gmail using Android
On Android, you can use similar steps to remotely sign out of other devices. Just follow the below instructions:
In the “Settings”, tap on “Google” and then tap on “Manage your Google Account” option.
Here swipe left on the menu at the top and select “Security” from it.
Scroll down and tap on “Manage devices” under the “Your devices” section.
You will find the list of devices where you are logged in currently. Just click on the device and tap on “Sign out” on the next page to sign out from it.
I should mention that you can’t use this method to sign out of the current device you are using. For the current device, you will have to use the regular sign out option available in the main account profile.
