Posted March 2, 2021 by Sheraz Ali in Android, Infinix

Phones like Infinix and Tecno come with a lot of adverts and bloatware content. Some of it can be removed from the device, while some, even though it can’t be removed completely, can still be made inactive or disabled. Apps in Infinix that count as bloatware are AHA Games, Carlcare, YoParty and other similar ones. Even though you can’t uninstall these built-in system apps, you can disable them so their ads don’t fill your device every 5 minutes. Find out below how to uninstall bloatware on Infinix as well as remove remaining ad content.

How to Uninstall Bloatware Apps on Infinix – Part 1

1. Open your Infinix device’s system settings > Apps & notifications.

2. Access your device’s apps directory.

3. Go to AHA Games.

A lot of the ads that are hogging an Infinix device are mostly from this app. They can also be found in the zero screen—the screen you see when you swipe right from your homepage—and under Instant Apps when you swipe up from home screen.

4. Tap on DISABLE > DISABLE APP.

5. Repeat the same steps for Carlcare app.

6. And for YoParty app, too.

These are all built-in system apps that can either be disabled and/or force-stopped. You cannot uninstall and remove them completely from an Infinix device. However, disabling them is quite the same as uninstalling them, for a disabled app will neither send you notifications nor ad content. It will seem as if it’s not even present in your device anymore…uninstalled, in a way.
