Delete Problem Apps

If you have an overuse problem, we highly recommend deleting problem apps. Eliminating them will cut down on your notifications and prevent unwanted launches.

But what about when I want to use these apps?

Open your browser and go to the company’s website instead. Most companies’ websites provide all the features of the app (e.g., Facebook.com).

To delete an app (e.g., Facebook, Messenger) press and hold the app icon until your icons start to shake. Then press the small (X) in the upper left corner.
