How to delete a Gmail account and Google account
What if it’s time to get rid of your Gmail account? Changing your email service or finally getting rid of that embarrassing username you made years ago is a simple process after you get your account deactivated. Now we will know How to delete a Gmail account and Google account.
The deletion of a Gmail account is irreversible. The procedure will remove all of your emails and account information when you have completed it successfully. You will no longer be able to send or receive emails using your Gmail account, and the address will no longer be made accessible for use by anyone else in the future.
However, removing a Gmail account does not result in the deletion of the complete Google Account with which the email address is tied. You will continue to have access to all of your other Google Account services, including Google Drive, your calendar, Google Play, and other applications and services. To prevent this from happening in the future, Gmail will prompt you to supply an additional email address that you may use to login into your Google Account. You may also delete your Google Chrome history if you want to.
