How To Uninstall / Remove APUS Launcher in Android ?

APUS Launcher holds the top position among Android third party launchers. Along with the Icon pack support it has built with some handy and useful features including APUS Mobile Search, APUS Radar, Smart Folder, Priority Apps, APUS Boost, etc.

Recently I tried APUS Launcher in my GS3 but, it wouldn't help me to keep using it even the mentioned features are available. When I try to uninstall the APUS Launcher It couldn't. In app manager Uninstall button was disabled. Then I noticed that I was activated the APUS in device administrators list to enable double tap screen lock. So deactivating the same will do the trick.

Follow the complete steps below.

Deactivate Apus Launcher in Device administrators


1. Go to Setting -> Security -> Device administrators
2. Tap on APUS and click Deactivate.
Or
1. Go to Setting -> Privacy -> Device administration -> Device administrators
2. Tap on APUS and click Deactivate.



Uninstall Apus Launcher


1. Go to Application Manager
2. Click on Apus Icon
3. In Apus App info page tap Clear defaults.
4. Finally, Tap on Uninstall

That's it.

    1. If the app not removed even after the reset.. Then it may be virus. reflashing the firmware will solve the issue.
