    The Gmail app does not log out, because it is linked to the Google account which you activated the phone with. What you need is a third party app that puts a password lock on any app you choose. Most such apps are paid, but AFAIK the app Seal is still free on GetJar now.

    I think ES security manager can do it too, it's free.

    Not really sure, since I only have one Gmail account, and I don't use the Gmail app for emails (I configured to Samsung stock Email app to handle all my accounts for emails and turned off sync for Gmail). However I'd expect the primary Gmail account to be the one you used to activate the phone. Other accounts could be accessed in the Gmail account via menu>accounts.
