Steps to Remove Bloatware on OnePlus

Always take a backup of your device before proceeding. Please analyze the app/package name before uninstalling/removing the app to make sure you really do not need it. Proceed with caution.

Depending on whether or not your OnePlus device is rooted, there are two different ways to uninstall bloatware from your device. And we have listed both of them below.

Using ADB Commands [For Non Rooted and Rooted Devices]

This method works well on both non-rooted and rooted Android devices. Below are the adb commands you can use to clean-up your OnePlus device. I prefer this method over the method mentioned in this guide because with this method, you can easily restore an app which you accidentally uninstall.

To uninstall an app:

adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 <package name>

To reinstall an app:

cmd package install-existing --user 0 <package name>

To disable an app:

adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 <package name>

To freeze an app:

cmd appops set <package_name> RUN_IN_BACKGROUND ignore
