Why cannot I remove Android phones from my Google account? I don't find any button for remove! I want to do that since I did factory reset of my phone and when I login again, it says (login using the owner's account of this phone) so I though if I remove it from my Google account, it will help. Kindly, can you guide me toward removing it?

  • That's odd. Are the other entries for that device missing the "Remove" button as well? I see this for mine: i.imgur.com/enwlF1N.png (Note to others, that page can be accessed from security.google.com/settings/security/activity) – Matthew Read Jan 6 '17 at 22:06

    @MatthewRead Yes all of them have no remove button!! I am trying to workaround this message that I am getting when I login my phone via Google account please sign in using one of the owner's account for this device even though I am using the correct account and correct password !!! – Michael Jan 6 '17 at 22:09
  • @MatthewRead I think it is due this pcnexus.net/2015/12/… – Michael Jan 6 '17 at 22:14
  • Oh, I see! Yes, to get through Factory Reset protection you will typically need to log into the device with the first account that was added on the device prior to the factory reset. If that's not possible, there are more solutions here: android.stackexchange.com/q/127739/1465 – Matthew Read Jan 7 '17 at 2:09
