  1. Dear Pramod,
    Could you guide me how to uninstall a BIDOU website of china company.
    I can not count on what their company said and I don’t want to use it.
    Thank you very much for your help..

  2. some of my apps don’t have an UNINSTALL button when viewed in the app manager…
    Galaxy Store
    NFL Mobile
    Slacker Radio
    I have a Samsung Galaxy J36V.
    Any suggestions?

    • If the Uninstall button is not active for these applications, then these are come preinstalled as system apps.

    • If the uninstall link isn’t lit or can’t be clicked, it means that the app was installed by the manufacturer or carrier. To uninstall these bloat apps you’ll need to root the phone, a process that grants you permission to customize your Android device beyond its normal scope. I suggest XDA Developers for instructions and resources on how to do this. After you have root access you can start removing these preinstalled apps, but first you’ll need to search for and download a root uninstaller from the Google Play Store, because the stock Android uninstaller still won’t work.
