How to tell if your phone has Covid 19 installed AND HOW to remove it:
Step 1. Go to Settings
Step 2. Click on GOOGLE
If you see COVID 19 at the top of the list you have it on your phone. How to remove it?
Step 1. Click on PLAY STORE and then SETTINGS and change to DO NOT AUTOUPDATE APPS. Then go to your main screen and go to step 2.
Step 2. Go to Settings then go to SECURITY AND LOCATION under Settings and shut off "FIND MY DEVICE".
Step 3. This is the most important part. Make sure your phone is backed up. Go to settings again and then go to APPS AND NOTIFICATIONS (SOME PHONES WILL SAY APPLICATIONS)
Step 4. Then click where it says SEE ALL APPS
Step 5. Look for GooglePLAYservices and click that Then on the top right click the 3 vertical dots and click Uninstall updates (If you don't see the 3 vertical lines some phones require you to click ADVANCED OPTIONS there and then the vertical lines show up).
This takes about 20 seconds so wait about 20 seconds. Now go back to step 1 and see if it's gone. Congratulations you just got rid of it!
Let me know in comments section if you had covid 19 on your phone also and if it removed it. God bless!
I would suggest NOT updating Google until the Scamdemic passes. You can update your other apps but I recommend don't update Google.
It is my personal opinion that the Scamdemic is being used to usher in the evil of socialism and the New World Order so I say this covid 19 app can go to hell where it belongs. This should be a choice.
What the hell is that?
I checked google settings covid 19, it says it is inoperable, because i always have bluetooth disabled
But I want my apps to update. I don’t have bluetooth on, so it don’t matter.
You can still update the rest of your apps. You just have to do it manually.
Just checked my BlackBerry Priv Android. Sure enough ... Covid-19 is at the top of the list. Looks like these directions might work on BlackBerry, too.
It does say that Bluetooth must be turned on for it to work, which I almost never have activated.
Most updates are NOT to your benefit.
I turned off ‘find my device’ (and the other steps) but if I go to settings, google, Covid 19 is still there
Thank You it worked like a charm, I was just about to get a flip phone!!
But I don’t want to do it manually. That’s a ton of work.
They keep things working. That’s what I want them to do.
Hype. It doesnt do anything unless you take several steps to enable it.
“Thank You it worked like a charm, I was just about to get a flip phone!!”
You wasted your time.
That GIF is no good without the music. ;)
Just did my Galaxy 20 ... a few small differences in the directions ... but got rid of the C19 spyware
Why do I need a smartphone to follow me around and nag at me. I already have a wife.
