Have you ever downloaded an app on your Android phone that you no longer use or need? Maybe it’s taking up too much space or causing your phone to run slow. Whatever the reason, it’s important to know how to completely remove an app from your Android phone.
Step 1: Go to your phone’s settings
The first step is to open your phone’s settings. You can do this by tapping on the gear icon in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon in the quick settings menu.
Step 2: Select “Apps & notifications”
Next, scroll down until you see “Apps & notifications” and tap on it. This will bring up a list of all the apps installed on your phone.
Step 3: Find the app you want to remove
Scroll through the list of apps until you find the one you want to remove. You can also use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find a specific app.
Step 4: Tap on the app and select “Uninstall”
Once you’ve found the app, tap on it to open its information page. From here, tap on “Uninstall” and then confirm that you want to uninstall the app when prompted.
Step 5 (optional): Clear data and cache
If you want to completely remove all traces of the app from your phone, including any saved data or cached files, you can also tap on “Storage & cache” from within the app’s information page. This will give you options to clear both data and cache for that particular app.
Note: Some pre-installed apps may not allow you to completely uninstall them. In these cases, you can only disable them which will prevent them from running and taking up space but they will still remain on your phone.
Alternative method: Using the app drawer
If you prefer, you can also uninstall apps directly from your phone’s app drawer. Simply find the app you want to remove, press and hold its icon until a menu appears, and then select “Uninstall”. This will take you directly to the app’s information page where you can confirm that you want to uninstall it.
Removing an app from your Android phone is a simple process that can help keep your device running smoothly and free up space for other apps or files. Just remember to check for any saved data or cached files before uninstalling if you want to completely remove all traces of the app.
