Gmail Tips

Sign out of all Gmail sessions

As an added security measure, it's a good idea to sign out of your Gmail or Google Apps account before you close your browser.

To sign out of Gmail or Google Apps, click on your email address in the top right of your screen and select Sign out.

You may not want to sign out each time when using your own PC, but it is particularly important to sign out if you are accessing your account on a shared computer or public network. However, if you forget to log out, you can log out of all previous sessions the next time you are at a computer.

To do this, open your Gmail or Google Apps account and click on the Details link in the bottom right of your screen. This will open up a pop up window where you can see recent activity, whether your Gmail or Google Apps account is open in any other location, and choose to Sign out of all other sessions. Clicking that button will ensure all your previous Gmail and Google Apps sessions are logged out, leaving you logged in to the current computer only.

Power tip New!

Marvin Ae. This si what you need to do. You can sign off all sessions by clicking on details at the lower right hand side of the screen and then click on sign off all other sessions. Additionally you can revoke access to the mail application on click on account permissions and then you will see a list of apps that have access to your email. you will be able to revoke access from that point. Hope that helps.

I access my emails thought the gmail app on my iphone and iPad. Last night it signed me out and into my old account I used to have with a university I used to attend. When I try to go to my inbox it says network error? I can't even try to sign out of that account and go into my current one I'm using. Need help

Mark Williams I'm not sure what has happened but you should be able to force a sign out. Either force close the Gmail app on the ios device or, go into your Gmail cpanel and access your user profile - from there you can reset sign in cookies. You need to have admin access to do this but if it is a personal Gmail account that should not be a problem.

I have trouble going from one email address to another. It gives me the option but when I choose the one I want; it gives me the last one that was signed on. We just in the last week or so started having this problem. What can we do?

Google Mail and apps have become extremely disappointing as it is never possible to sign out completely. It is disgusting and may be I shall have to abandon this disgusting apps for good.

I too am experiencing some strange things with Google Gmail and analytics over the past 24 hours. Google coding is appearing in the module positions on the analytic pages and I cannot fully log out of Google's "One Account. All of Google" I often setup Google accounts for my clients which requires full logout of my account. Anybody have any ideas.

i have just sold my ipad and galaxy tab. i did not sign out of my gmail app and the buyer can probably click on the gmail app and see all my email accounts because they do not require passwords. i have logged into my gmail account and clicked sign out of all sessions using my pc hoping it would remotely sign out of the gmail app accounts on the tab and ipad i sold. after i did that i tried with my other tablet that i currently have with me and it was still signed in, meaning even the tab and ipad i sold i am still logged in. Is there a way i can sign out of those gmail apps?

Something weird is happening when I log out of my gmail account. After logging out I now see a window that has title of One Account All of Google which looks different that the sign out I was used to from Gmail. Now if I use my roboform to log in with another I cannot. It keeps trying to log into the account I just exited with the alternative account I am trying to use. Is there any way to get back to the old log out system in gmail. I do not want to associate all my gmail accounts in google.

Hi, I have several gmail accounts, and have no difficulty logging/signing out by clicking on my name at the top righthand corner and clicking sign out. However, recently one of my accounts has changed in that the account name no longer is shown. I am unable to discover where I can go to log out. I have tried the bottom right hand corner "recent activities" option, but that still leaves me logged in on the current session/computer. I want to get logged off completely. Any suggestions? J

Can google provide an easier access at the top of the page to "log out" of your account when you have accessed it from a computer? I want to make sure my browser is logged out, but I want my android phone to still be logged in, I'm confused if I can log out of all sessions if it logs out my phone gmail acct which I do not want that to happen....I'll try it, but the info I'm finding online isn't clarifying this. Thx!
