How do I update the "saved" gmail password ON MY Nexus 7?
« on: April 10, 2014, 10:23:54 AM »
I changed my password on my Gmail account.  That worked fine.  I used it on my laptop perfectly.

However, my Nexus 7 gives me an error message when I turn it on. "COULDN'T SIGN IN" YOU TYPED AN INCORRECT PASSWORD ( It still has the old password remembered, obviously). It then says RETYPE YOUR PASSWORD ( no place is provided to do that).  it then says IF YOU FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD AND NEED TO RECOVER CLICK ...H E R E ...Clicking on that location just puts me into an endless loop.   

I even tried deleting my gmail account app....but...it really doesn't let me do that...Just reloads the original app.

Somewhere on the Nexus 7 I MUST be able to change the automatic password...but..I don't know where.  Any help appreciated.  thanks,  Rich

Swipe down from the top right and tap Settings, scroll down to Accounts and tap Google, then tap the email address for the account that is not working correctly, in the window that opens tap the three vertical dots at the top right and remove the account. You will be able to add to account back in the same screen with the correct password.

Thank you very much. That worked fine. 

Prior to posting here, I did a Google search of the same question.  Now I know not to bother with anyplace other than here.    regards, Rich
