I have spent weeks looking for a solution to this and finally this post helped me! It was so far from obvious and it felt like Google wanted me to keep the account by force lol. Anyway, what I did was go to Settings > Accounts > Google, clicked the account I wanted to delete, the Sync menu option opened and this is where I always got stuck. Through this, I ...

Being "logged in" is a misconception. Even when you are "logged in" when you use a browser, this is handled by the storage of a cookie with an authentication token stored in it. On the device is sort of the same, except it is not a "cookie". When you set up your account, an authentication token is requested and stored on the device. A new token can also be ...

I found a workaround for my problem that works splendidly. After having installed the latest version of the Gmail App, I have discovered that when I go to Settings > Account > Add account, I can configure a generic email address (i.e. not necessarily a Gmail one) to be used with the said App. It supports both IMAP and POP3 protocols. (sorry for the ...

There's no way to do this. It's been posed on Gmail's support forums in the past and the answer has always been (from the linked discussion above): ... Google's native apps on Android phones are designed to use the phone itself to sign in and out. If you're concerned about account security on your phone I recommend you add a lock pattern or PIN to ...

There's an awkward solution: Renaming the package name inside an apk as proposed by Adobe to fix a nasty limitation of their AIR framework, XDA has the same too. All use apktool to reverse engineer an app (unpack apk, change package name in AndroidManifest.xml, repack, resign). Note: This won't change locations on the SD card though (if it's used, all 5 ...

The Amazon Kindle Store and the Google Android Market are different stores. Apps you buy in one store are not honored in the other store. You can install the Amazon Store on your Nexus One pretty easily, so you'll be able to use Apps you buy on your Fire on your Nexus One. But going the other way is more trouble (it currently requires you've rooted your ...

I had a similar issue (new device can install from Google Play, but from the website it wasn't being shown as a device under my Settings). What I had to do was to go into Settings/Apps/Google Play on the device and then clear the data. Once that is done, when you next launch Play, it will ask you to accept the terms and conditions. Then I just downloaded an ...

While you add the Google account or even afterwards (from account settings), you can select the content and services to sync. You can select only Gmail, leaving alone all the other services you don't want like Google+, drive, sheets, docs etc. There's no need to setup a third party email client. All (most) Google apps are aware of this functionality and ...

You can't do this because: There's only one Google Services Framework running for all accounts. Google Accounts credentials are stored centrally from where Google Apps authenticate. But, there's a way to solve your issue: Turn on IMAP from Gmail settings. And, use IMAP in default Email app or K-9 Mail app. Done! Play Store can't see it..

All applications that use Android's internal Google Account system should ask you which Google Account they should use on their first run.This includes games, but excludes websites as they do not use any Android framework.

As far as I know there is no way that you can limit the ability of the phone to edit content. That said there are many steps you can take to ensure that somebody won't be able to get to the stage where they can delete your content and dealing with it if it happens: setup a pin number on your sim setup a lock screen on your phone install an application like ...

Titanium Backup PRO (and only the paid (Pro) version allows this) - FYI ROOT REQUIRED - does allow Profiles, but not the running of multiple insntances of the same app, with the exception of Winamp (but Winamp has Always been written to do that, no matter the platform)

I think I have encountered a similar issue before. Not sure how I fixed it, but see if you have a Device Administrator for Exchange. In the Samsung Galaxy S4, it's in Settings > More > Security > Device Administrators. Uncheck / Remove it there, do a restart, and see if that helps. or: Go to your application manager, and swipe to the ALL section. ...

Be patient, it can take a while for your device to show on there

Go back to the Settings menu, and in the Wireless and Networks section tap Data Usage. Then press the menu button and in the popup menu check the Auto Sync Data box. You can then return to the Google account page mentioned in the question, where the list of services is, and select the newly visible checkmarks next to which ones you want to automatically ...

First, I wouldn't be that worried about 'hiding' the phone. I would be worried that if he can see what they download, his account is still attached to that phone. which means they can see EVERYTHING he downloads, emails, chats, etc. He needs to change the password on the gmail account. Maybe, for extra security, turn on 2 step verification. You can't, at ...

I was able to get around this by putting in an invalid email address on the first step (e.g. myname@mydomain.com.exchange) then clicking the button to set up the account manually. I wanted to set up an Exchange account and was able to enter my proper corporate credentials in the following steps. This seems to have worked.

Just decompile the app, change package name, compile, push to phone. Done! Just dont distribute it, advertising it as yours, because that is illegal.

When you open the play store or any google application to choose between your logged in accounts swipe from left to open options and then touch on the account name of yours. You will then see all the accounts that you are logged in with. Now choose the one you wish to use.

You can't install an app twice unless you go deep down hacking. I don't know how WhatsApp works but you may just be able to put multiple accounts to one device. These accounts then may be handled separately by a single app. You can also try to look for alternatives if WhatsApp doesn't support multiple accounts.

Yes you can use two WhatsApp account in a single phone,and here is an alternate method. There are so many application using them you can use dual WhatsApp, and Parallel Space, simply install application Parallel Space from Google Play. After installing, there you will see an option for WhatsApp, using that you can use another WhatsApp account. Using Parallel ...

After much effort, I tried this simple method and it worked to solve the problem of being able to create a new user or logon as a guest with zero prompts for a password from the lock screen. Note that you actually have to log on using the guest account for this to work: Log onto the guest account, and then from settings -> users -> remove guest user. After ...

I just ran into a very similar issue, where I was trying to update an app owned by a different account. The fix was simple: I logged into the play store with the desired account on the web from my desktop, then installed the app from there. The app updated successfully and its ownership switched to the desired account
