How To Uninstall Chinese Software From Your Device [2023]


Pre-installed software has always been the scourge of Android smartphones. Realizing that not only Google but also themselves, can make money on this, manufacturers began to massively offer their partners to install their applications in the firmware of their devices. This is how Facebook, Twitter, SwiftKey, etc. appeared on most modern devices. In this article, you’ll learn how to how to uninstall Chinese software from your device.

But not only did they just appear in the firmware, but the manufacturers also forbade deleting them. But, in addition to clients of social networks, smartphones today are bursting with software from Chinese developers, which most users did not need from the word at all. Therefore, it is logical that special utilities began to appear to search for and remove such software.

Despite the fact that often Chinese software differs from non-Chinese only in its origin, many users dream of getting rid of it. Moreover, if you tell them that the application they want to remove is, say, of French or Guinean origin, they will most likely agree to keep it. Apparently, the image of China as a rising superpower, trying to seize control over users from all over the world, has been affected. Whether this is really so, I can’t judge, but I can help with the removal of Chinese applications.

How to find Chinese apps

  • Go to “Settings” – “Security” and enable downloading from untrusted sources;
  • Download the Remove China Apps app (until recently it was available on Google Play, but Google considered that it violated the listing rules and removed it from there);

Today, you can download Remove China Apps only from the official website of the developer

  • Launch Chrome – “Downloaded Files” and install Remove China Apps;

  • Run the Remove China Apps application and wait for the scan to finish (the application will scan the smartphone for Chinese software);
  • Confirm the removal of Chinese applications if the application was able to identify them as a result of the analysis.

I don’t know what criteria Remove China Apps uses to detect Chinese apps, because after the first launch it couldn’t find any corresponding apps on my Honor View 20, which was apparently developed by Chinese experts. Therefore, for the purposes of the experiment, I had to independently install the WeChat messenger from Google Play on my smartphone. After that, I rescanned and the Remove China Apps algorithms detected the enemy software and offered to remove it.

Most likely, the application has a certain list of Chinese programs that are either released by developers affiliated with the Chinese government or have been convicted of collecting user data. And one does not exclude the other, since WeChat is the development of the Tencent Holdings studio, which, although it is private, is, according to experts, closely connected with the Chinese government and, obviously, collects data in its interests. Therefore, proprietary Huawei applications were not marked as “Chinese”, but WeChat was.

If the method of searching for Chinese apps from Remove China Apps did not suit you, you can try, if not remove, then at least block them. This can be done very easily using the standard tools of the smartphone itself. By the way, the instructions described below are equally effective in relation to any application in general, regardless of who is their developer or publisher.

How to Stop Apps on Android

  • Go to “Settings” – “Applications” and find the program you want to block;
  • Go to the page of this application by tapping on its icon;

If the application is not removed, you can simply stop it

  • In the window that opens, select the “Stop” option;
  • Repeat this manipulation with all applications that you want to block.

This action will stop the application. Although it does not remove it, from now on it will not function, run without your knowledge and collect data, if any. Yes, this is a compromise method, but if you don’t want to get rooted by hacking your smartphone and voluntarily voiding your warranty, then simply stopping the application is the most effective and efficient method that should not be neglected.
