    Hi,

    So someone I know lost their phone and wants to make sure no one can access their gmail.

    googling tells me to change the password.

    But I tried that on one of my gmail accounts - changed the password - but my phone still syncs to it. So changing the password doesn't work.

    Is there any way to un-sync gmail from a phone without the phone?

    If you change the password on a pc, the phone shouldn't sync until you put the new password in.
