    hey guys, first post on this site but was wondering if you could help me. My galaxy s2 got stollen from me about a week and a half ago. But i only just remembered that my credit card details are saved onto my market account. So just wondering if theres anyway to sign out of googleplay from my computer? I just got my replacement phone and would like to use the same account, so i'd rather avoid having to permanently remove my details from my google wallet (already done as a temp measure).

    Thanks guys and sorry for the wall of text :)

    I believe the playstore is tied to your original gmail account. I would change your password and then set up the two step verification method. (The gmail/google account associated with your playstore account)

    It's a bit of a pain to set up for beginners, but it's worth it!

    Even if someone got your password, they cannot get into your google account unless they have your phone (The one you got now).

    Well you could try the same solution. Or you can swallow your embarrassment and just ask him to log you out.

    Either way he won't get updates to his apps if your account was used to install them. I hate to ask, but why didn't he just create an account for the purpose?

    Hi TriggUK, sorry to hear about your loss. If you want to sign out of your google play account, you just need to sign out of google and change the password for your account. This will help you signout of not only your google play account but all the other accounts that are associated to google. Hope this helps you. https://appuals.com/sign-google-account-remote-devices/
