Edit or delete contacts

After you add contacts to your Android device, you can make changes or delete them.

Contacts saved to your Google Account will sync with Google Contacts and all your Android devices.

Note: If the following steps don't work, you're probably using the old version of Contacts. Go to edit or delete contacts in old Contacts.

Edit a contact

  1. Go to Google Contacts.
  2. Click a contact's name.
  3. In the top right corner, click Edit Edit contact.
  4. Edit the information.
  5. Click Save.

Note: You can't change details that automatically come from:

  • Your contact's Google profile
  • Your contact’s work, school, or organization
  • Google Maps, if your contact is a business

Delete a contact

  1. Go to Google Contacts.
  2. To select contacts, check the boxes that appear next to their names.
  3. To delete multiple contacts at a time, check all the contacts you want to delete.
  4. In the top right, click More More and then Delete and then Delete.

Undo changes to contacts

You can erase any changes you made to your contacts during the past 30 days.

Note: When you restore contacts to a certain time, such as one week ago, any contacts added after that time won't show up. Learn how to export your current contacts and add them back later.

  1. Go to Google Contacts.
  2. Click More and then Undo changes.
  3. Choose a time to go back to.
  4. Click Confirm.
