When signing in with Google (OAuth), it shows a list of accounts it already knows about. How can I remove some accounts from this list?

sign in with google

I know I can nuke all of them by deleting all cookies, but I'd prefer to remove one account that I don't want there, rather than all of them.

There used to be an ability to edit this list in the older version of this screen, but in 2018 redesign Google has removed [×] buttons next to the accounts.

    @Shwaydogg untrue. its still valid and up to date – user0 Apr 3 at 23:05
  • @user0 If you are still logged into another account the link you provided does not take you to the screen in your gif. And when I've seen that ux it does not have the "Remove and Account" as you show. The other answer seems to be the more reliable one now at the least... – Shwaydogg Apr 3 at 23:23

I wasn't getting the remove button in the account chooser either, but it's actually easier now:

  1. Sign out of the account you want to remove.
  2. Click on the accounts drop down menu (top right).
  3. Click the signed out account.
  4. You'll see overlaid options to Remove or Sign In; click Remove.
