I had my gmail account from an old employer disabled. It keeps on notifying me on "Account Action Required". I can only disable the sync in "Accounts and Settings", not remove it entirely. How do I remove it?

I use the 4.2 OEM OS.

  • @onik No, I added it third Mar 14, 2014 at 6:37

There should be an option to remove non-primary Google accounts if you go to Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> (the Google account), tap the three-dot menu in the top right corner and select Remove Account.
