Here’s a small problem I came across I figured I’d share the solution. How To Uninstall Vipre Mobile Security.
Vipre Mobile Security is a very nice security software for mobile devices, and your computer as well. The app offers a lot of features for a good price.
But what happens if you download it for the 30 day trial and decide for whatever reason that you no longer want it? If you have tried to delete it like every other app, then you probably run into the same issue I did, “can not uninstall.” That wasn’t what I wanted to see, and I’m sure you probably felt the same way. But there is a reason why you can’t just uninstall Vipre Mobile Security as you would any other app.
As a security app, Vipre Mobile Security has certain permissions that a regular app doesn’t. For example. When you first start-up Vipre, you are prompted to allow it to have administrator access. This allows it to erase data, change the lock screen password, and do other things you want a security app to do. So here in lies the issue of removing Vipre as a regular app.
So, what do you have to do first before Vipre Mobile Security can be uninstalled?
- Go to Settings
- Select Security
- Tap “Select Device Administrators” or “Device Administrators”
- Uncheck the box next to Vipre Mobile Security
Now you can delete Vipre as you would any other app!
Hope this helps.
‘Til the next episode, peace!
