How to remove preinstalled apps on Android

Android works great, but there is a small defect in this operating system that many users simply do not support: the amount of useless applications that are preinstalled on the mobile and we do not know how to remove. In many places you will have read that to eliminate these factory apps it is necessary to be a root user, a true truth halfway and that there is a way to disable them and free up space on your device without being root. Do you want to know what it is? here we explain how to remove applications preinstalled on Android without being root .

Steps to follow:

1.Those who are root users have the possibility of removing many of the applications that are preinstalled on the mobile, however it is also possible to free up space by disabling applications without the need to be root. But what is the difference between delete and disable? By disabling an app we have the possibility that it stops running on our mobile, storing data and taking up space, although it will not be eliminated from the internal memory of the mobile, it will no longer take up resources when executed allowing us to optimize the space of the device.

The apps we select will have a copy in the system in case at any time we want to enable them again. To start removing preinstalled applications, you must go to the settings option (the nut).

2.To continue, go down to the device and there choose the “Applications” option where you will have access to all the apps installed on your device.

3.As you will see in this list of installed applications there are many that you have downloaded yourself, such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but other apps are installed by default on your mobile, for example Google Play Books , Play Music or YouTube. Many of these applications are not used by us and are taking up space, so it is best to disable them.

You should know that you cannot disable any essential app for device operation. In this case I have chosen YouTube because I do not use it, but you can choose any of those that you identify as preinstalled and that are not useful to you.

4.Enter the preinstalled application and press the “Disable” button to stop consuming space and resources on your device.

5.The system will tell you that by disabling this application others could be affected and if you agree to continue with the process, you must accept. Then it will ask if you want to replace the app with the factory version, you must also accept

6.It’s that simple and fast! Following these steps you will have already been able to remove applications preinstalled on Android without being a root user , and even if they are not completely out of mobile memory when you disable them you will gain a good portion of space to fill it with whatever you want.
