How can I log out from my Google account on Android 6.0.1 in my Galaxy A5?
I tried the following:
- Settings -> Accounts -> No such option anywhere...
- Settings -> Cloud and Accounts -> Accounts -> Google -> [three dots top right] -> Remove account -> [some warning] -> Remove account (to confirm) -> [hint saying "Account is needed by some apps. You can only remove it by resetting to factory defaults..."] -> [back to square one]
Which defeats the point because then I'd need to re-install my apps, for which I'd need to re-login.
I'm happy to take unusual routes, i.e., brute force log out by deleting files, tokens or even the entire Android tree in the file system etc. if that's an option.
Fun fact: I managed to log out (I'm pretty sure it was via the second option from above) last time I logged in, which was about 2 months ago. Has something changed recently? Did Google become even more adamant in pressing down its surveill^Wservices down its users throats?
