How to Disable Factory Apps on Android

One of the things that annoys me the most as an Android user is that when I buy a Smartphone on many occasions it usually comes with pre-installed applications (also known as Bloatware ) that cannot be uninstalled (or at least by conventional methods). This is really frustrating since we don’t usually use them, they consume resources and therefore waste battery. In MrAppsGeek we already saw a method by which we could remove any pre-installed app , but let’s be honest, it is a very cumbersome method in which you will need to use a PC to carry it out . But don’t worry, today we are going to teach you a trick with which you candeactivate factory applications on Android , thanks to which you can block some such as Aliexpress, Netflix and Chrome. It should also be noted that we are talking about deactivating and not deleting, however the process is similar since deactivating them will prevent them from charging with the system, saving battery and system resources.

To hide the pre-installed apps on Android , the first thing we must do is enter “Settings” on our smartphone.

Once inside we must enter “Applications” .

Here we will see a list of all the apps that we have available, we will only have to locate the app that comes pre-installed and resists being removed. For example, in my case I want to uninstall Google Chrome from the factory on Android and I can’t do it, so it will be an excellent candidate to show you how it crashes.

Once we have selected the app that resists being deleted, we will enter a screen called “Application Information” which offers us a lot of relevant information about it. Well, we will have to force stop it in order to close the application in the background .

A generic message will appear that will tell us that errors may appear, so we will click on “Accept” .
