How do I delete a device?

When you delete data from your Google account, it is not immediately destroyed. Instead, it is first sent to a secure location where it is held for a period of time in case you need to recover it. After that, it is permanently deleted.
This process generally takes around 2 months from the time of deletion. This often includes up to a month-long recovery period in case the data was removed unintentionally. Each Google storage system from which data gets deleted has its own detailed process for safe and complete deletion.
What happens to Family Link when child turns 13
There are a few things to consider when deciding whether to let your child manage their own Google Account or continue to manage it for them. If your child is responsible and you feel comfortable with them using Google services unsupervised, then you can remove supervision from their account. However, if you feel like your child needs more help and supervision using Google services, then you can keep their account under your supervision. Ultimately, the decision is up to you and what you feel is best for your child.
To deactivate your child’s Google account:
Go to the mobile settings and click on Apps (Apps & notifications), then choose Google Play Store
Tap Storage and Clear data
Enter the new parental control PIN code to validate the deactivation of account management
Finally, uninstall the Google Family Link application for total autonomy on the phone.
Can you override Family Link?
If you want to bypass Family Link without a PIN, you can clear the Google Play Store’s data. This will erase parental control settings and clear the entire search history, but won’t delete any downloads.
