If you search for cancel Google in search engines you notice that this request can mean lots of different things depending on the user’s intention. The first and most obvious is to cancel a Google account which will remove the account and all Google services that were linked to that account.
Google maintains a help page that explains the process. The Google user needs to log into the account first, click on Settings > Google Account Settings afterwards and then on the Edit link next to My Products.
This leads to a new page with the option to cancel the Google account completely by clicking on “Close account and delete all services and info associated with it”.
But canceling the complete account is sometimes not the user’s intention. Some users want to cancel a specific Google service, like Gmail or Google Picasa instead.
The steps outlined above to cancel the Google account can also be used to cancel Google services that the user has signed up for.
Both solutions require that the Google user is able to log into the Google account. Users who have troubles doing that can request a password reset if the password that they enter is not accepted in the login.
But cancel Google can mean something more simplistic as well: Changing the start page from Google to another provider. It happens that the start page gets changed either by installing a Google product that comes with the option to make Google the default search engine and homepage, by installing third party software that changes the homepage or by buying a computer with those default settings.
The way this can be reverted or changed depends on the web browser used. Below are some websites for the most popular web browsers:
Cancel Google can also mean to stop using Google software that is installed on the computer system. This can be Google Desktop Search or Google Picasa. All of those programs can be uninstalled from the control panel of the operating system.
