By default Gmail only allows users to sign out of all devices on their mobile or PC. This is especially if you have logged in with multiple accounts. You may be using these accounts for Google Drive, Photos, YouTube, or Gmail only. This is not limited to only Chrome users, but MS Edge, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc. But don’t worry, there is no problem with that because there are options available to sign out of only one Google account.
The only thing is you don’t know the method to do it. That is why you are here and I am going to show you do it in easy steps.
This is really an annoying feature Google has recently implemented. I mean why should log out of all the accounts there. There may be one for your business, for only Gmail or YouTube, for kids, and for others. So if I do so then you will need to re-login with your username and password again.
And guess what? Many users don’t even recognize their passwords. At least for me, such a feature doesn’t make any sense. I mean let me use my Google account the way I want. I hope you guys are getting my point. Anyway, let’s get to the procedure…
