How do I uninstall, disable, or lock apps on my Android device?

Uninstall, disable, and lock applications on the device so they can't be accessed and interfere with your Fotaflo operations.

Uninstall or disable applications

  1. Open the list of apps on your device.
  2. Long-press on an app that you want to uninstall or disable.
  3. Select App info or the "i" information icon.
  4. Tap Uninstall or Disable. Some apps can only be disabled and can't be removed from your device.
    1. Disable all apps possible except: Chrome, My Files, Play Store, Settings, Gallery and Camera

Group unused apps into a folder

    We also recommend you group any applications that cannot be uninstalled or disabled and are not going to be used for any Fotaflo tasks into one folder. Here is a quick online tutorial that can help you in that process: Creating an Application Folder.

    Move all unused app to one folder labeled “Do not Use”

    • To do this hold down on “Calendar” app
    • Move overtop of “Contacts” app
    • This will open the folder
    • Label folder “Do not use”
    • Add all unused apps to folder

    We recommend this application: Perfect AppLock (App Protector)

    Once you download the application you will then be prompted to enter a passcode. That passcode will be needed to access the applications that you use Perfect App lock to lockdown. Lock down every application that you do not want to be accessed.
