We all know the plight of bloatwares and their impact on an Android smartphone’s battery, and the security/privacy concern that comes with the pre-installed apps on many phones. Ordinarily, one would have to root their Android smartphone to get rid of the bloatware, but a new tool that is available on GitHub aims to remove the root entirely in the process. Here is how you can get rid of your phones excess bloatware on Android smartphones.
Getting rid excess bloatware on Android Smartphones just got a lot more convenient
Bloatware is something that comes pre-installed on a vast number of Android Smartphones. These apps are mostly installed on contract based phones and their apps can not be uninstalled by any ordinary means as these are classified as system apps.
While many perceive bloatware to be harmless, there is a concern among users with regards to security, privacy, and most importantly, battery. These apps continue running in the background, gather data and could potentially be sending data unbeknownst to you every time you are connected to the internet.
Ordinarily, to get rid of bloatware, one would have to resort to rooting their phone. This is a measure carried out by the end user that allows them to have administrator privileges on their phone and be able to carry out a number of functions a plain user would not be able to, such as uninstalling system apps.
While rooting is a relatively quick and simple process, it is something that the average user or novice user avoids as they have warranty concerns and how technical the process is.
A new app that is available on GitHub aims to make it possible to remove bloatware apps without the need of rooting your device!
It sounds too good to be true, but there are actually no strings attached.
The only caveat to this whole scheme is that the entire process is a bit technical. It is highly recommended you take the help of an advanced user in the world of tech to help you carry this out. The instructions are mentioned in the GitHub page and are easy to follow for someone who knows what they’re doing.
