Trying this again (tech problem?)...keeping gmail private on cellphone...


Recommended Posts

I posted my question yesterday and when I try to read any replies I might have, I get a message box that says I don't have permission to do this action...(but I know I can post because I have done so many times before!). So I can't even read my original post, then I get sent to the 'social groups' forums...


So here's my situation: I have to upgrade my cell phone and am switching from iphone to android for various reasons.  The question I have regardless of either type of phone is what is an easy solution to keeping my gmail private?  I see that anyone who has access to my phone (children...), if they wanted to, they could read my gmails and all of my files just by hitting my gmail icon. I have case sensitive material that doesn't need to be shared with anyone...I have searched the internet and it seems this is a common problem. Seriously?  Google has not made an easy solution to this one?  Does anyone have any easy ideas?  Thank you!

You could log out when you're done reading your email?


Old school, but... :D


This. I would also suggest only accessing it through the browser, then logging out. Don't sync your gmail account to your phone. I think there is a way to only import contacts and calendar without it drawing your email in.
