    yes, you can log out of the gmail for the web browser, but the rest of the account continues to run in the background.

    if you want to change how the Notifications are effecting you, use the web browser to log into your Account Settings.

    but I only do it on Public computers.

    While I never use the mobile version of Gmail on my Nexus 6, because I obviously have the Gmail app, I just ran a test to confirm a hunch...

    My guess, and it seems to be correct, is that as long as you are using an Android device with Google Play Services, that requires you to be logged in to use, you will always still be automatically logged into Gmail, since your Google Account is basically your Gmail Account.

    Basically, what I am trying to say is, if you want to be signed out of your Gmail Account, while using an Android phone, you would have to do so, without being signed in to Google Play Services, which doing so would render your Android phone practicality useless.

    The only alternative, that I can possibly think of, would be to Root your phone, stop using Google Services and GApps all together, and install F-Droid, Amazon Underground App Store, Amazon Fire OS or some other Open Source Linux based OS.

    Otherwise, you are stuck with being logged into Gmail on your Android phone, while using your Android phone.

    It sounds like you are still logged into your gmail account on another devise like an iPad or computer.. That's why it's already open when you type gmail in your browser.

    In a round about way, I figured out how to do it for you...

    I had to give my spare S5 phone to the daughter as her HTC went to bonkersland...

    well, it was registered to my gmail account natcherly.....
    ended up going to gmail accounts on it and Logging Out, but the phone was still registered to me.

    so then, I went to Google Accounts on my PC browser and unlinked, and removed the device S5.
    When I did that, Play.Google.Store refused to work for her anymore.

    then went into Settings/accounts and registered her a new Google Account and wallah, the phone no longer thinks it belongs to me.

    if you don't want to do the above, the phone will always know of you on your registered gmail account, because that is how Google Services keeps track,

    Azgl..... I want to keep all 3 devices still linked to me.., just not gmail on phone..... I'm not trying to create a different accnt. So being that I don't think it will work for me.

    My answer to "borrowing my phone" is one word "NO!"

    I will make a call for you, and then hand it to you to talk.

    but that is the extent of anyone using my phone.
    No one is ever allowed to use it for any other purpose.
    Your 1st line of defense is total control...
