Default [Q] KeyVPN?

Hey,

Changed my CID to HTC__Y13 to get the latest update and changed back to HTC__001, Was wondering, since that latest build something called KeyVPN got installed. It's not possible to remove it, is there any other methods apart from rooting to get rid of the application?

Would this app be included in the UK release (Because I was just thinking to wait till the UK one was out, flash my RUU back to stock and update to the UK firmware.)

Thanks
Alex

You can only remove system apps with root access.

Remove it if you want, but I don't think it's really anything to worry about.
