    I hope this is ok that I made a new thread for this as the older threads I found didnt seem to ever find a definite answer. So mods, feel free and delete this thread or merge if you like. :)

    Ok, so it seems no one could give me a straight answer regarding signing out of Google from my device. I was told I must delete the account from my device or change the password, uninstall this or that...etc because there is no way to actually sign out. Well I think I found a way without deleting accounts or uninstalling anything.

    Heres what I did:

    Go to settings > manage apps > Gmail > click on it > clear cache. Dont clear data. (Well I didnt. Not sure if that will delete contacts or not.)

    Do the same for these apps as well BUT clear data as well:

    Google Play Games
    Google Play Services
    Google Play Store
    Google Search

    Next, go back into settings > Google > Search > Accounts and Privacy > Google Account > click Google Account > sign out. :)
    Thats it! You're done and signed out! Go make sure you're signed out, got back and follow the last steps and you when you get to Google Account, it should say something like, signed out of Google.

    This should work for you as it did for me.

    Hope this helps!
