    My wife and I both have S5's and when we set them up somehow we teethered(sp?) our Gmail accounts together. She doesn't like the notices I get from YouTube and other sites when I make a comment. Is there a way to separate them?

    Are you getting notifications for her account too?

    Are you sure you've both got a separate gmail account?

    Just trying to figure out how deeply tied together your accounts are.

    I have gotten no notices about her post.
    It may have been set up for saving pictures in one location to make it easier to find. The only reason she even has Gmail/Google account is to use play store. She noticed the issue when I posted a comment on a YouTube video, and later when I made a Meme and it saved it on her Google cloud account.

    Go to your main Settings Menu and find the Accounts option. Tap that and see if her account shows in there and/or your account shows in hers.

    That's a good place to start.

    My settings have only one account. I will check hers when I get home.
