How to uninstall native Android apps – SEM root

To remove bloatwares from your Android device without root, we will use the Windows application: Debloater. Follow the walkthrough below:

  • Download and install Debloater on your computer;
  • Connect your device via USB cable;
  • Enable the USB Debugging function on the device. To do this just go to Settings> Developer Options> Debugging> USB Debugging.

If the "developer options" feature is not enabled, go to Settings> About phone> Search for "Version number"> Ring repeatedly about her until a warning from you now a developer appears:

  • With debug mode enabled, open Debloater on your computer;
  • Upload the information;
  • click in Read device packages;
  • Select and review the packages you want to remove;
  • click in Apply.

Note: Pay close attention to the packages you wish to delete, as many of them may have names that are not easily recognizable, and some may affect other applications.

Rescue

If you have deleted any application you did not want to remove, do not despair. Debloater does not delete anything permanently, it simply blocks the process, which stops running on your device. If you made a mistake, just unlock everything by clicking UnBlock All Packages and all native programs will be restored.

Removing native apps from your Android

If you have met all the prerequisites, we will work! But, before that, I recommend a backup of your device data, because if you end up uninstalling any system package needed for your phone use, you can recover it through the backup. Otherwise you will need to reinstall the original ROM of the device.

When opening the Titanium Backup Root program for the first time, you will need to allow superuser access by clicking on the option To allow, as indicated in the image below. You will then be directed to the first screen of the app with three tabs: Overview, Backup / Restore and Schedules, select the option Backup / Restore:

As you can see in the image above, all applications installed on your smartphone will appear in the list and all you need to do is locate the program you want to uninstall and click on it. The program will show details of the App and offer the options of Backup, Freeze and Uninstall. Choose the button Uninstall and the app is no longer part of your device software:

Clicking "Uninstall" removes the native app from your Android / AndroidPIT smartphone.

If you are unsure how to remove the app completely, Titanium Backup root also offers the ability to just disable the app by clicking the button. Freeze.

As you can see, removing native applications from the system is not a difficult process to do, but it does require administrative access to the device in the second option, which may cause you to lose your smartphone warranty. This process is recommended above all for device with internal storage issues.

What applications to uninstall?

As mentioned before, Android smartphones come with completely unnecessary applications, which in many cases even worsen the performance of your device. Now that you have learned how to do, then I will give you the five applications that you should uninstall for various reasons such as: excessive battery consumption, stratospheric data plan usage, useless functions, or outdated services.

Facebook

The Facebook app is a function-packed social networking tool with which you can make much of your public life. It always keeps you informed when you are tagged in an image, when a friend makes a birthday or when someone comments on your photo.

This range of functions makes a number of services run in the background, which costs your device a lot of battery and RAM. Handling some notifications and functions can bring a lot of autonomy to your Android. Therefore, it is a good idea to uninstall the Social Network app.

Instead of the app, you can set the Facebook site as the home window of your favorite browser. Open Facebook in the browser, log in, and when on the main page, open the menu on the address book button and select Add home screen. When you close this tab, Facebook simply stops consuming your battery and data plan.

Another option might be to try Facebook Lite, a much lighter alternative Facebook app, saving RAM by loading lower resolution images:

Weather (or any other weather forecast app)

Weather widgets or apps not only take up space but also consume data by updating your forecasts at regular intervals (whether you like it or not). To know the weather of a certain location at a certain time, you don't need specific apps: just ask Google! This option saves working memory, internal memory, data volume, and battery.

If you prefer to open other services and stay with a weather app, check out our list of the best apps of its kind:

360 Security (or any other antivirus app)

Your Android device and Play Store already have good native services to avoid installing viruses and malware. In addition, antivirus applications often have an anti-theft function, which requires administrator access. That way, if any of these companies are attacked by hackers, your device can be permanently locked away.

Google already offers such a service (Android Device Manager) and the Play Store has powerful filters to prevent virus apps from being made available in the store. Of course, the story changes a little when you usually download apps from unknown sources. Google has the best service for remotely locating and managing your device.

Clean Master (or any cleaning application)

Cleaning applications promise more memory space on your device. True: When you delete apps, some residual files remain on your smartphone, and many apps clog your internal memory with cache data. However, we do not need applications to perform the cleanup. V at as Android Settings> Storage and at points like Cached Data or several You can clear the cache and manually clear useless files.

Services like Clean Master and the company operate regular cleanups, but also consume more battery and their data plan with advertising. In addition, Flash memory cells have a limited number of write cycles, so it's not worth clearing the entire cache of certain apps to start storing information from scratch.

Default browser

Did you choose Chrome, Firefox or another browser? So get rid of the default browser. It is based on an older engine, which does not receive security updates and makes your internet browsing vulnerable. To protect your passwords and private data, always choose a current browser. Our list below brings the best services for Android:

To get rid of the default browser, go to Settings> Applications> All and disable the service. The advantage of alternative browsers (in addition to increased security) is the many data saving option, plus the ability to synchronize with equivalent desktop service.
