    Hi
    I have looked around the forum for a while and couldn't find any thing on this subject - apologies if this is duplicating a thread somewhere else.

    I have more than 1 gmail account. When I want to check the mail on any other account not associated with my phone I use gmail from the browser. When I go to the gmail web page to sign in, a small yellow pop up appears at the top offering to login to the account that is associated with my phone with out having to type in the password. Apart from being annoying I think it to also be a security risk of sorts.

    Does any one know if there is a way of stopping this pop up from appearing?

    I have looked around the settings and I'll be damned if I can find it.

    Not exactly what you asked, but you don't need to use such a convoluted method to do this. Gmail can be connected to multiple accounts. Menu -> Settings -> Add Account.

    This is true and I have 2 accounts associated in the gmail app, but there is a 3rd one I don't want connected with the phone. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Ha, I just knew this was about that damn Verizon pop up. I hate that damn thing. It covers the entire screen too.

    try clearing the data for the browser or using an alternative(dolphin) I get the pop up also (but i use it) and i'm pretty sure it only started appearing after I told the browser to remember my "sign in" data.

    Thanks for the offering sdrawkcab25. Alas clearing all the browser data does not remove the pop up :-(. It's looking more and more like I will have to use another browser - sigh!
    Its such a simple thing to stop, why is there no setting for it or at least why is not more obvious? - frustrating!

    Yeah, I can see how it would be annoying if that isn't the account you want to sign in with. I haven't run accross any setting to turn it off.

    Just allow the main account to stay logged in to the browser always, that will stop the popups from showing up. Then use Multiple Sign-In to switch to the other one as needed.
