Question about removing a location

The business account tells me I have duplicate location, that is because i registered the same with two different accounts.

Now i have taken ownership of both on my business account and want to resolve the duplicate problem.

What i did:

clicked on one of the location, then on the remove button, inserted the account password then this page showed and i am puzzled as it seems it will delete the whole google account.

Will this delete the google account or just the location associated with it? If it is the latter: you should change the wording!The locationsThe locationsClicked on the second one (the one i wish to delete) and then "remove listing"Clicked on the second one (the one i wish to delete) and then "remove listing"

it's indeed bit confusing @Alberto S


But don't worry it will remove  the "virtual" account as mentioned in the blue bar on top of your firstb screenshot only.


But please be also awar this fact:

removing a listing from your dahsboard will NOT remove the listing from Google.

It just tells Google like: I'm not anymore the primary owner of the listing in question -the listing remains as unverified listing on Google/GoolgeMaps.
