I used my Google account to initially log in but that is my wrong account. I wanted to log in with my other account but the app always automatically logs me back in with my Google account when I revisit the login page.

  • App Version: 1.0.95
  • Device Manufacturer: LGE
  • Device Model: Nexus 5X
    • OS Version: 8.1.0 (4903069)

    Try disabling Smart Lock for Passwords' auto sign-in feature, then use "Log in using Stack Exchange" to log in with the email you want. Yes, this is pretty awkward; Smart Lock doesn't play well with multiple accounts. – Shog9 Aug 26 '18 at 2:26
  • @Shog9 Not So Smart Lock ? – rene Aug 26 '18 at 7:22

Wouldn't logging out of SE, logging out of Google and then logging back in to SE work. Delete your cookies for SE/SO/Etc.com from the browser you want to use or try a different browser on your phone.

Remove a site or app with access to your account

  1. Open your Google Account. You might need to sign in.
  2. Under "Sign-in & security," choose Apps with account access and then Manage apps.
  3. Choose the site or app you want to remove.
  4. Choose Remove.

Note: If you remove account access from a third-party site or app, it may retain information you provided from:

  • When you signed in with your Google Account
  • When you granted additional Google Account access to the app or site

Those last two points means Google doesn't obligate the site to erase everything, but the site won't have permission from Google Sign-In and so a properly working website ought to require you to authenticate yourself by email and password or one of the other 3rd party authenticators.

  • Notice that the OP is using the SE Android-app. Those don't come with an option to delete your cookies ... – rene Aug 26 '18 at 7:59
  • Since it only connects to one place deleting and reinstalling would probably be easier than figuring out to go into Android settings, APPs, the APP's name, Storage, and then hit [Clear Cache] and [Clear Data] if needed. There's also uninstalling the APP, login with the Browser, reinstall the APP. Any of those will clear cookies/tokens/etc. – Rob Aug 26 '18 at 8:06
