welcome, and today’s article is about how one can remove bloatware (pre-installed apps) that are already pre-installed in your device by the manufacturer. I will teach you guys two different methods that you can use to remove bloatware, one with rooted Android and other with nonrooted Android to remove the bloatware apps.
What is Bloatware?
Bloatware is essentially pre-installed apps which are locked by device manufacturers. In other words, you cannot delete OEM apps with standard methods. While Google Pixel devices allow Android users to disable bloatware, other OEMs like Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei and so on restrict any kind of disabling.
How to Remove Bloatware
the method is easy and straight forward, all you need to do is to follow the simple guide below and feel free to comment when you get stuck or you dont something
1 Removing Bloatware Apps Without Root
If your device is not rooted then this method is the best for you but if your device is rooted then jump to the second method
- To begin with, you need to enable developer option which you can enable by navigating to Settings -> More -> Developer options
- Now tap on Developer options, scroll down to debugging and “enable USB debugging“
- now download Debloater and install it on your computer
- Now connect your Android device via USB cable to your PC and wait for the tool to detect your device.
- Now after the device is detected, you will need to scan the apps that are being currently installed on your device, and that includes your system apps. Simply mark the apps that you want to remove.
- You just need to click on apply button, and this will block all those apps from your device, and they will be no longer there on your device to consume your memory.
You can also undo this process by unticking them to access them again
How to remove Bloatware with Root
Rooting unlocks the full potential of your device. And if you have rooted your device then stick to this method.
- To begin with, download and install Nobloat link.

Grant whenSuperSU asks for root permission.
- Now tap on ‘System Apps’ and it will list out all apps installed on your device including the bloatware.
