Google stores account credentials in two different ways on the iPad. To clear your Google accounts, you will need to follow both steps below.

Step 1: Sign Out of Google Branded Apps

  1. Open one of the Google apps (Drive, Classroom, Docs, etc.)
  2. Open the Settings menu and look for the account/sign-in section

Step 2: Sign Out of Safari
