How to Remove Samsung Bloatware Without Root

Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablet devices do come with a lot of preinstalled apps or games (bloatware) that may not be useful for several users whatsoever. Now, the problem with the preinstalled apps on the operating system is that you can’t easily uninstall them, unlike the third-party apps or games that you install manually. So, if you’re also looking to Remove Samsung Bloatware Without Root then check out this article.

As we’ve already mentioned, preinstalled apps or games that come with a device out of the box, also known as ‘Bloatware’. Now, some of the bloatware can even be accepted up to some extent but the rest of the bloatware is neither safe to use nor come in handy at all. These days we used to call such useless preinstalled apps ‘Junk’ more or less. Although it seems that users can delete some bloatware, some can’t be deleted.

So, it’s quite necessary to uninstall all of those preinstalled useless apps or games from the Samsung Galaxy devices safely because there are a lot of data privacy issues happening around. Since the company doesn’t offer you to uninstall bloatware quite easily or there is no bloatware removal tool available yet, it’s better to follow this full guide to safely uninstall them directly from your handset using the ADB commands without Root.

Why Debloat your Samsung Device?

  • Bloatware unnecessarily clutters the app drawer.
  • Pre-installed apps occupy a lot of storage space on your phone’s internal storage.
  • Bloatware consumes internet data and battery juice in the background most of the time.
  • Pre-installed apps can cause performance drops to the system and make your device slow.
  • Some of the not-so-reliable bloat apps can compromise your personal data with others.

3. Steps to Remove Samsung Bloatware Without Root

  • You’ll have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC first.
  • If you haven’t turned on USB Debugging on your device then do it right now.
  • Make sure to connect your Samsung Galaxy device to the PC via a USB cable.
  • Next, go to the installed platform-tools folder on your PC.
  • Type in CMD in its address bar and hit Enter to open Command Prompt. [If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes to allow admin access]
  • Now, download and install the latest Samsung USB Drivers on your PC. This will easily create a communication bridge between both the devices for performing adb commands.
  • Also, make sure to increase the display screen timeout option to 10 minutes temporarily from the device Settings menu > Display > Screen Timeout. It’ll ensure that your device screen won’t get turned off during the bloatware uninstallation process.
  • Execute the below command and if you get an alphanumeric character string, it indicates the device has been successfully connected to the PC in ADB mode:

adb devices

  • If the “Allow USB debugging” pop-up window appears on your device screen then select ‘Always allow from this computer and tap on Allow to proceed.
  • You’ll get the connected device ID under the ‘List of devices attached’ section on the command prompt window. That means your device is successfully connected in ADB mode.
  • Now, execute the following command line:

adb shell

  • You’ll see a $ (symbol) on the command prompt window to start the process.
  • Now, you can easily execute the following command to delete the app but it’ll keep the app data & cache (if you want):

Note: <name of package> will be the actual app package name that you want to uninstall. It’s important to place the app package name after the command line without <> quotes. While the app package name will be found above from the list easily.

pm uninstall -k –user 0 <name of app package>


  • You can execute the following command to delete the app completely including app data & cache as well:

pm uninstall –user 0 <name of app package>

For example; if you want to uninstall the stock calendar app from your Samsung Galaxy device completely then you’ll have to execute this command:

pm uninstall –user 0

If you want to keep the cache & data of the stock calendar app then run the following command:

pm uninstall -k –user 0

It’s simple as that. Just replace the app package name according to your preference after the specific command as per your requirement and run the command.

  • Once you receive the ‘Success’ message on the command prompt, you’re done. [Do the same thing with each and every preinstalled app that you want to remove.
  • Enjoy!
