How do I remove google products from my account? and How do I remove dats stored on my Dashboard? Edit my Products 8/19/10 7:32 AM
1. How do I remove google products from my account?  On the google accounts page, if you click edit next to my products, the only two choices i can make are to delete my gmail account (which i do not want to do) or to delete my entire account and all associated products with it.  However, there are no choices to delete other products like igoogle or docs which appear under my products on the google account page.

2. How do I remove data stored on my Dashboard?  On the google accounts Dashboard page, I cannot remove or delete data for items such as Tasks, Calendar, Checkout, Docs, etc.  I've went into each individual product's settings as well to try to delete all data, but there is clearly no way to have these product's data removed from my dashboard page.

1. You can't.
    Note: If you're attempting to get rid of iGoogle then
             - Use: http://www.google.com/ig/resetprefs.html?hl=en
             - and possibly read:

               - http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=29468

2. There is no data stored on the dashboard: https://www.google.com/dashboard
    Everything you see on the dashboard is a view on Google services, not the data itself.

Finally, Avoiding to use any particular Google service should ideally have no side-effects.
Is there any particular Google service causing you grief?

I am with you on this one. I would like to be able to delete all product info associated with my google account except for my Gmail info. I don't want to lose that username but I have info stored in some of the other products that I no longer and I don't want to worry about them anymore.

I hope google rectifies this soon and enables us to delete all google product data on an individual basis not an all or nothing situation.

Maybe they are secretly controlling us
I noticed than when I clicked the delete account link, there were check boxes next to each product I had ever looked at. Does this mean I can delete individual ones?

I want to delete Google Finance from My Account.  For the life of me I cant understand why we cant delete/remove products that we do not want to have show up on OUR accounts.    Makes ZERO sense.

Okay, since we currently can't edit all of our products either through the Dashboard or by clicking "Edit" next to "My products" on the Account page, when will we be able to do it? It seems like a straight-forward, logical feature. I would like to delete products that I no longer use and/or are no longer being supported rather than having them clutter my page. Can someone from Google shed light on this?

I am really angry that a product I just clicked on to see what it is now is forever listed as one of "my products" even though I don't want it and never use it.  I agree with others here that Google should allow us to do that.  Otherwise Google is asserting Google, not I, controls my interface.  It's almost enough to make me close the entire account, which I may do soon!

I want to delete Google Voice from my account, along with a plethora of other Google products that I no longer use nor used (I just clicked to see what they were about and viola, they were "added" to my account forever). 

Google - please fix this bug immediately.

Google either address this issue or let your users know it's status.
*******************************************************************************

It is a vital, standard part of any product's/application's life cycle. No user should have to search for a way to delete a product. Who has  the time or even knows where to look? Having set up several account for non-profits, I feel for those persons and groups that do not have the man power or skills to use a basic Google account but also have to try to figure out what is current and what isn't.

It is irresponsible to leave it out, shows disregard for users, is a time waster and boarders on sloppy workmanship. Pardon my tone but it is the result of years of frustration trying to find an answer to this problem as well as having to live with clutter in my account. I no longer try new products because I can't delete the ones I have attached to my account.

Google what is the status of this feature? I really do want to use your products.

" irresponsible" ?

Its not irresponsible, its a bug.  Google does not know how to implement a DELETE feature or else it would have by now.  All that money and no brains.

It is irresponsible to not address the problem whatever it's cause. User should be made aware of the problem especially so "before" adding more products to their accounts. If they can't fix it, then tell us.

Yes @weby, I agree.  Google has tons of developers at its disposal and guess what?  They do NOT want to add a delete feature or else this would have been done a long time ago. 
Re: How do I remove google products from my account? and How do I remove dats stored on my Dashboard? Lorrie Laskey 5/17/11 7:34 AM
That might be the case but I hope not. It would be a shame to delete an entire account just to start over. For some, persons and organization, this is not an option.
Re: How do I remove google products from my account? and How do I remove dats stored on my Dashboard? Agent Frank 5/17/11 7:36 AM
@weby: No one wants to delete their entire account, myself included.  It is a shame.

Agreed.

Any update on this issue? I would like finally to have control over MY account. The option of closing the entire account begins to look more attractive.

any update google?!?!!

"Is there any particular Google service causing you grief?" -- in my case, i have google products that are affiliated with work that are attached to my personal email and i would like to remove them. it seems like this is something google can understand and address.

Google does not update
Google is just the new Microsoft
Welcome Bill Schimdt and Larry Gates!
Google is the world wide Berlusconi!
I think I'm going to a judge and tell him the story. It's also a privacy concern. We all should!
Let's make a world wide class action!

One more vote for the option to choose which products show in the previous Google accounts page as well as the option to choose which products show in the current Google menu bar.

Where, pray tell, did you find an email address for contacting Google Support?
