Default [Q] Permanently uninstall netflix

I have a Galaxy Tab 2 7" and it is running out of space. I uninstalled Netflix since I canceled the account and have no need for the app anymore, but I keep getting messages to update the app that I don't have any more! How do I get it to go away forever and stop bugging me?

Before you uninstalled, did you go into system>app find the Netflix app, force close it, then wipe data, then uninstall? If not that's most likely the issue. Have you tried wiping cache/dalvik?

I had no reason to think that I needed to do anything other than select "Uninstall" from the menu, so no. I don't think I ever used it on the device, so I had no reason to think there was any data to wipe. I have no idea what cache/dalvik is, where to find it, or how to "wipe" it, so no, I didn't try that, either.

Are you rooted? If not, re-download Netflix and follow the steps I laid out for uninstall. It makes sure there's no residual bits of info from the app. This is how I uninstall and never have these kinds of issues or deleted wakelock issues.

Cloud Search SD Maid

Since you indicated that you were running out of space, you could also check out SD Maid and use it to free up some space and perhaps clean up data from apps you might have uninstalled in the past. Improved results can be gained if you are rooted.
