You receive the following error when trying to uninstall a system-level app included in the OS of the device:
For example, the MyVerizon app is a system-level app built into the device.
System-level apps cannot be removed using any uninstall tool or ADB tools, neither manually nor automated. This applies by design to any app built into the OS.
Although system-level apps on AndroidOS cannot be removed from the device, AndroidOS does allow you to disable those apps.
For example, under Settings > Apps, you can see the disable button for the system-level app.
To disable system-level apps:
- Open the Settings app .
- Tap Apps & Notifications
- Tap the app you want to disable. If you do not see it, first tap See all apps or App info.
- Tap Disable.
