1. First, download the Universal Android Debloater
(UAD) from .... Click on “Assets” and download the EXE file for Windows. If you are on macOS, download the .tar.gz file.
2. Next, you need to set up ADB on your PC
. Follow our linked tutorial to install ADB
3. After that, open a Terminal window
(CMD for Windows and Terminal for macOS). Here, type adb devices and hit Enter. If it returns a serial number, you are good to go.
4. Now, move the UAD file
you downloaded to the platform-tools folder.
5. Finally, open the Universal Android Debloater, and it will automatically detect
your Android smartphone.
6. Once your device is detected, make sure “Recommended
” is selected under the top drop-down menu. Based on your device ROM, Universal Android Debloater pulls the list of bloatware that can be safely removed. UAD has documented the list of removable bloatware for all major smartphone manufacturers. For general users, I will suggest sticking to the “Recommended” list.
7. Now, select the packages you want to remove and simply click on “Uninstall selection
” at the bottom right. That said, I suggest you carefully check the package name and apply your own mind before uninstalling a package.
8. This way, you can safely remove bloatware from your Android phone using Universal Android Debloater. In case you want to restore a particular package, you can choose “Uninstalled” or “Disabled”
from the drop-down menu and select the package. Now, click on “Restore selection”.
9. You can also search for particular apps from the search bar. In case the app is not showing up in the debloater, install Package Name Viewer 2.0

-> is there any risk to install this app? sniffle ware?
edit: on the wiki there are quite some alternatives listed... e.g. "useful apps"
Now, search for the package name and uninstall the bloatware right away.
10. Finally, to remove carrier-specific bloatware on Android, choose “carrier” from the third drop-down menu
and remove the unnecessary apps. You can repeat the same process to remove Google bloatware, OEM bloatware, AOSP apps, etc.*
