Google has some incredibly useful programs and services that have revolutionized the Internet and even communication. One of the reasons their platforms like Gmail are so popular is because you can install add-ons and apps that extend their functionality. While this is great, there will likely come a time when you don’t need these extensions, and removing them isn’t so straightforward.
Here’s how you can uninstall plugins, extensions and apps you have connected to your Gmail account. When you do go to remove extensions or plugins, you should be aware that you didn’t actually install these apps to Gmail, you installed them to your Google account and likely the browser that you use e.g., Chrome or Firefox. Therefore you get rid of them, you will need to do two things:
1. Revoke the app’s access rights
This can be done by:
Be sure to scroll down a bit and look if there are any duplicates. If there are, press Revoke Access beside these as well. Once you reload Gmail, the apps should be gone. They may still ask you for permission though. If they do, this means that the app or plugin is also installed in your browser. You will need to uninstall it from there as well.
2. Remove an app from your browser
Even after the permission has been revoked, the app may still ask you for it. If it does, this means that the app or plugin is also installed in your browser. You will need to uninstall it from there as well. Here’s how you can do it in Chrome and Firefox
Remove an app from Chrome
Remove an app from Firefox
It would be a good idea to only do this if you really want to get rid of the app or plug-in in question. When you are looking at different apps and permissions associated with your account, be sure to leave them alone, especially if you aren’t sure about the app. Or, you could contact us to see how we can help.
