Hi, I'm using a private Outlook account on my Android phone. In the past, I added my work account in the OneDrive app for Android. I need to remove this account, but...

 

1) The OneDrive app only has an option 'Sign out', not an option to remove the account.

2) Excel and Word for Android also show the work account under 'settings', with a red cross. The work account can be removed there, but whenever I choose 'reset Office', the work account returns automatically.

3) The Android Settings have an Accounts option, removing the OneDrive-work-account there also doesn't help, OneDrive still shows the account.

 

I've tried endlessly removing and reinstalling apps, nothing works. Somehow it seems there's a link between the accounts which is restored on each and every occasion.

 

I've seen similar questions, like the one below, but as far as the questions have a solution, it doesn't work in my case.

Any clues?

Cheers.
