How to Remove System Apps Zenfone Max Pro M2 Without Root
Written by Prosenjit Dey

In this guide, I describe how to remove stock apps of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2. Although this device is a game changer and successor of the Zenfone Max Pro M1. Even this device comes with stock Android but Asus pre-installed some bloatware in this new device. So, how you can remove stay tune and follow the proper steps to remove bloatware.

This thing We Need?

First, make sure your device USB Debugging is enabled. in some of the cases, you can’t find this option if you’re a newbie in this process.

Just go to setting and search About device, and then click tap 5-6 times on Build Number after that you can find Developer Option into your setting.

Download this ADB SDK driver 

With that out of the way, we can enable USB debugging.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to System > Developer options or just Developer options
  3. Scroll until you find USB debugging
  4. Toggle the switch on

Now run the command “adb devices” without quotes, and the copy and run the commands from the below lists.

Note: the app which you want to remove. 
This will remove apps for the current user and will return in case of factory reset. So if you mess something up, do a factory reset to get out of trouble.
In case the command fails then the app is already removed .. so no negative impact/issue in that case
