How do I unlock in Hangouts

Here's how to delete a Google Hangouts account without affecting your Gmail information

Hangouts is an app developed and distributed by Google. Initially it was introduced as an additional function for Google+, but later converted into a stand-alone app. The main function of Google Hangouts is corporate communication. There are currently two main flavors in Hangouts: Google Hangouts Meet and Google Hangouts Chat. The app comes pre-installed on some operating systems, and while this can be useful, not everyone wants Hangouts on their device.
