Remove a work account from an Android device

When you remove a Google Workspace account from your device, everything associated with the account is removed from the device, including email, contacts, and settings. If your device has a work profile, then work-managed apps are removed from the device, too. Your Google Workspace data is still available when you sign in with your computer, a web browser, or another authorized mobile device.

If you don't have a work profile or the legacy Device Administrator mode and you remove your Google Workspace account, when you add your work account back to your device, all apps on your device are removed, including any personal apps.
