I have three accounts in my Android phone. I have apps installed in the phone via them. Now I want to delete one of the account (NOT primary) but don't want to lose the apps related to them.

Is there a way to do that?

Or if I can move my apps from one account to another, so that after doing this I can delete the second account?

    Are these purchased apps our free ones? – Chahk Mar 28 '12 at 12:49
  • some are purchased and some are free... but more importantly I can not loose the data in them ... its about data of 1.5 yrs ... – akkilis Mar 29 '12 at 6:12
  • If you're worried about losing data, I'd strongly advise getting Titanium Backup and doing a full backup of your phone before you make any changes. That way if anything happens to go wrong, you can just restore from the backup. – Logos Mar 29 '12 at 11:32

Deleting a secondary account won't delete the already installed apps associated with the account, AFAIK. However, that's a loophole that Google might plug in the future.

It's not possible to move apps from one account to another.

  • thanks @Logos ... so Will I be able to update those apps even after I have deleted the account related to them? – akkilis Mar 29 '12 at 6:13
  • Yes, the apps should still update. – Logos Mar 29 '12 at 11:31
