Do you want to delete Pre-installed Android Apps? then this article is for you

This article discusses how to disable apps that you can’t uninstall as well as how to remove apps from Google Play or Android Settings.



An Android phone typically has software preinstalled when you purchase it. This software has the potential to be helpful or a bothersome CPU and battery hog for your phone. Here’s how to get rid of this “bloatware” if you’re sick of it.

First, you should see how much of the bloatware can be removed.

  1. Open your Settings app

  2. Go to the General tab and select Apps and Notifications.

  3. Tap on the offending app. At the top will be two buttons, Uninstall and Force Stop. The buttons will be lit if they’re active, and grey if they’re not usable.

  4. Tap Uninstall to remove it.

    Note: Apps you can’t uninstall will be labeled Disable or have the Uninstall button greyed out. Make a note of these for later.


If you’d prefer not to use the settings app, you can also uninstall apps through the Google Play Store.

  1. Open the Google Play Store and open the menu.

  2. Tap My Apps & Games and then Installed. This will open a menu of apps installed on your phone.

  3. Tap the app you want to remove and it will take you to that app’s page on the Google Play Store.

  4. Tap Uninstall.

Note: the Play store, “uninstall” sometimes will only uninstall updates from the app, not the app itself. In this case, you’ll also need to disable it.

You can reduce your chance of security flaws by disabling these apps if you’re not going to use them and don’t feel comfortable using some of the ways we’ll cover for removing bloatware below. By disabling an app, you prevent it from running, from being “woken up” by other programs, and from engaging in any background tasks.

  1. Uninstall all updates from the app through the Google Play store, using the instructions above.

  2. Enter the Settings app, and navigate to the Apps & Notifications menu, tap the app that you want to disable.

  3. Tap Permissions and disable any permissions. This will keep the app in line if you’re forced to enable it later.

  4. Tap the Disable button. You will receive a warning that disabling the app may affect the function of other apps. Make a note of this. It is rare that disabling an app you don’t use will have any effect on your day-to-day phone usage, but it’s not impossible. Press OK and the app will be disabled.
