Unlink a device in the Your Phone app

Step 1: Complete unlinking steps on your Android device

Start by checking which mobile app your Android device has. You can reference this list to see if your device supports Link to Windows. If your device is not in this list, move down to the section named "If you have Your Phone Companion." 

If you have Link to Windows:

  1. On your Android device, open Link to Windows by going into the Quick Access panel, tap and hold on the Link to Windows icon.

  2. Click on Microsoft account.

  3. Scroll down to Your Phone Companion where you will see your previously used Microsoft account email address.

  4. Click on Your Phone Companion and click Remove account.

  5. Move on to Step 2 to finish the unlinking process from your PC.

If you have Your Phone Companion:

  1. On your Android device, open Your Phone Companion.

  2. In the upper right-hand corner, click the Settings gear.

  3. Tap Accounts.

  4. Find the Microsoft account and click the button to the right Sign out.

  5. Move on to Step 2 to finish the unlinking process from your mobile device.

Step 2: Complete unlinking steps on your PC

  1. Open your browser and go to accounts.microsoft.com/devices/android-ios. Sign in with your Microsoft account.

  2. You’ll be presented with a list of all your connected devices. For each, select Unlink.

  3. Go back to the Your Phone app, and close and reopen the app to apply the unlinking changes.

Your device is now unlinked from the Your Phone app. You can continue to use any other linked devices with Your Phone. If you'd like to use this device with Your Phone in the future, you will need to link your devices again.
