On most sites, the remove login feature has been moved. You now must go to a Q&A site, such as stackoverflow.com, then go to your profile -> edit profile and settings -> my logins.

You will now see the remove button, like the below:

Note: changing your login methods on one site will change your login methods for all sites you currently use. (source)

As for the rest of the sites with the older design, according to this answer:

  1. Open your profile page
  2. Click the "my logins" link near the top
  3. Click the little (x) to the right of the login you wish to remove.

If you squint hard enough, you can see through that black box

    I think this info is outdated - the "my logins" page on my accout looks completely different. – klauspeter Oct 7 '13 at 15:57

    Same problem here. When I click "My logins" from the profile page of StackExchange.com, I get a small modal which lists 2 Stack Exchange email addresses (one of which I want to remove) and 1 Google login (which I do not want to remove). I guess I'll have to contact StackExchange directly? – blong Sep 23 '14 at 13:58

    @blong the Network Profile isn't a real profile. It's a read-only view of your activity over the whole network of sites. As such, you should not be able to edit anything, so this behavior is by design. You just have to do it per-site. Actually, per this answer, doing it in one single site will affect all other sites automatically – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 7 '15 at 10:50
  • The second method is not possible for Area51. I had to use my StackOverflow account to delete an unwanted login. Anyonw know why? – BusyProgrammer Mar 27 '17 at 5:07
