Title: reauthorizing google drive account
Post by: bluest170 on September 21, 2013, 12:20:40 PM
I have changed my Google drive password.

Now my Samsung S4 will not back up.

How do I change the Google drive password in avast so this will carry on backing up my data.

Step by step instructions if possible please.

Thanks
Glenn

I think the only way will be disabling google drive, losing the backup files, enabling google drive again, remake the backup.

its enough to disable all backup settings on your device. then you can change google account, and you'll also not loose already backed up data.
