As an administrator, you can sign a user out of a managed Google Account, such as Google Workspace or Cloud Identity.

Wipe data from a mobile device

If you use Google endpoint management, you can wipe data from a mobile device. You might want to wipe data if sensitive data is on a lost or stolen device or a user leaves your organization. In many cases, you can remotely remove data from the device. However, the user can still access their Google data through web apps and other authorized mobile devices. For details, go to Wipe corporate data from a device.

Additional account security step: Revoke authorized access

You can revoke third-party app access to a user's managed Google Account so apps can’t access the user’s data anymore. For example, a user might install a diagramming app that needs access to their Google Drive files so it can create diagrams or flowcharts. When the app is installed, it asks the user to grant access to the data for their Google service. You can make sure these apps can no longer access the user’s data. For instructions, go to Manage a user's security settings.
