Default [Q] How to uninstall application without traces

Hello

I need to install a application several times. But now the application is aware that it has been installed before.
How can I install it again so that no traces is left on the machine? Regards

As you remove it from settings- Apps..

So in go to settings- apps.. Open the app scroll down you will see clear data option.. Clear it then uninstall the app.. Install it again.

Depending on the App, there may not be much you can do. For example, the app may connect to a server and the server is keeping track of which devices have loaded the app.

Also, please be aware that if you are trying to extend your "free" usage period for an app...say get whatsapp for another year for free, then you really can't ask for help doing that on xda. That would be considered a form of warez and is strictly forbidden on xda.
